About the company
Hestra - one of the World's leading glove brands
The family business Martin Magnusson & Co. was founded in 1936 and is now run by the third generation of Magnussons. Both design and development is done at the headquarters in the town of Hestra.
Our gloves are manufactured in our own factories and we personally buy all leather, fabric, wool and other materials. This gives us control of the production chain and ensures a high level of quality. Several of our models are handmade by some of the most experienced glove makers in Europe.
In 2015, we produced over 2 million pairs of gloves. The company has about 40 employees at its headquarters in Sweden. We also have a subsidiaries in the United States and Germany as well as agents, distributors and retailers in over 30 countries.
In addition to Scandinavia, the United States, Alp- countries and Japan are our largest markets. The owners and managers are brothers Claes and Svante Magnusson. They have two sons – the fourth generation of Magnussons – who also work at Hestra.
HESTRA is one of the leading international glove brands in skiing, outdoor recreation and leisure. We also develop gloves for professional uses such as construction work under the brand name HESTRA JOB. Design and product development is done in cooperation with some of the world's best professional skiers and adventurers under the direction of Design director Marianne Knutsson-Hall.
From lumberjacks to mountaineers
Hands come first at Hestra. For 80 years, we have been developing gloves that provide warmth, protection and fingertip sensitivity in the most varied conditions. Today, our range comprises more than 400 styles. It may sound a lot, but people and hands are different. That’s why different gloves are needed.
Everything that we 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.
In 1937, a ski slope was created nearby and as its popularity grew, Magnusson saw a new market for his high quality, durable gloves. His sons, Lars-Olof and Göte, became keen skiers and started working in the family business in their teens. Over the years, the word about our gloves spread to places beyond the village that gave us our name. Sweden was becoming a nation of enthusiastic skiers and the sport’s popularity grew in the 1960s. With their avid interest in skiing, Lars-Olof, Göte and their brother-in-law Lennart made sure that Hestra jumped on the bandwagon.
Since then, two more generations of the Magnusson family have entered the company; Svante and Claes, who grew up among skis and gloves, and now their sons, Niklas, Jacob, Anton and Jonas too.
Today, Hestra has a presence in over 25 countries and, although we now have three factories and manufacture gloves for sports, fashion and professional uses, nothing has really changed. The focus remains on hands and gloves. And Hestra is still our home.
