The family business Hestra. was founded in 1936 and is now run by the third generation of the Magnusson family. Both design and development is done at the headquarters in the town of Hestra. Their gloves and mitts are manufactured in their own factories and they personally buy all leather, fabric, wool and other materials. This gives Hestra control of the production chain and ensures a high level of quality. Several Hestra models are handmade by some of the most experienced glove makers in Europe.
