Hestra has been in the business of hands and gloves since 1936. Founded in Hestra, Sweden, they started off handcrafting high-quality gloves for local lumberjacks. Before long, they expanded into ski gloves, and in the decades since, the family business has only continued to grow. With distributors in over 40 countries, their focus on putting hands first hasn’t changed.
Hands come first
From the beginning, Hestra has been focused on offering gloves that are durable, comfortable and of the highest quality possible. They have their hands in every stage of production, from buying their own raw materials to having the gloves put together in their own factories, many models still being handmade to this day. Check out their selection of gloves and mittens to see their quality firsthand.
In good hands
Since their inception, Hestra has had a commitment to sustainability in their production. They partner with suppliers who put their focus on environmental technology to reduce their impact, such as leather tanneries that have made strides like building a purification plant to remove 99% of the contaminants from the water used in the tanning process. Hestra’s suppliers are a limited group who must meet the company’s high standards, and those partnerships extend into the decades to ensure continued sustainability in their manufacturing.
