Hestra is a family business (Martin Magnusson & Co). It was founded in 1936 and is now run by the third and fourth generation of the Magnussons family. All of the designing and development is done at their headquarters in Hestra, Sweden.
Their gloves are manufactured in their own factories and they personally buy all leather, fabric, wool and other materials. This gives the brand control of the production chain and ensures a high level of quality. Several of their models are handmade by some of the most experienced glove makers in Europe.
