The family business Hestra was founded in 1936 by Martin Magnusson and is today run by the third and fourth generation of Magnussons.
Design and development is made at the headquarters in the town of Hestra, Sweden. The gloves are manufactured in our own factories and we buy all leather, fabrics, wool and other materials ourselves. This gives Hestra control of the production chain and ensures a high level of quality. In 2015, the company produced about 2 million pairs of gloves and has about 45 employees at their headquarters in Sweden. Furthermore Hestra has subsidiaries in the United States and Germany, and is now selling their gloves to over 30 countries world wide.
