Family-owned Hestra was founded by Martin Magnusson in 1936 in the village of Hestra, Småland, in the south of Sweden. Their first product was durable gloves for loggers. Over time, the assortment grew to include not only professional work gloves, but also gloves for skiing and other outdoor activities, dress gloves and bespoke gloves. Sustainability is a core value to the company and by owning their own factories, Hestra is able to control the entire production chain, from the material and the design to transports and waste, to the finished glove. With a strong focus on craftsmanship and different customer needs, Hestra has grown to become one of the leading international glove manufacturers. Today, the third Magnusson generation is managing both the company and the know-how of glove-making, with its design studio still located in the heart of Småland.
