Hands come first at HESTRA. For 79 years, they have been developing gloves that provide warmth, protection and fingertip sensitivity in the most varied conditions.
Everything that HESTRA do today has grown out of the timber forests of the uplands in the Swedish province of Småland. That is where Martin Magnusson and his family settled and where he began making gloves in 1936. Magnusson set up his workshop in a farmhouse and started making gloves for the local lumberjacks. The family business Martin Magnusson & Co is now run by the third generation of Magnussons. Both design and development is done at the headquarters in the town of Hestra.
