The family business Martin Magnusson & Co was founded in 1936 and is today run by the third and fourth generation of Magnussons. For over 80 years, Hestra Gloves has been making high-quality gloves and mitts for skiers and snowboarders around the world.
The design and development of each Hestra glove is completed at the headquarters in the town of Hestra, Sweden. Hestra's gloves are manufactured in their own factories, utilizing leather, fabrics, wool and other materials that are purchased directly by the in-house team. This gives them control of the production chain and ensures a high level of quality.
The owners and managers are the brothers Claes and Svante Magnusson. They have two sons each – the fourth generation of Magnussons – who also work in the company. For Hestra, making gloves will always be a craft.
