This high quality brand all started in Sweden, in 1936 by a farmer who wanted to design tough, durable leather gloves for lumberjacks. When the winter came around, Hestra gloves were then adapted to ensure winter sports people were provided with warm and durable winter gloves. This brand is family run; the business likes to ensure only the highest quality materials are used by personally buying all leathers, cloths and wools etc. used to make these supreme gloves. So if you would like gloves that are super strong, will keep you warm and last you years then Hestra gloves are the ones for you!
