The family business Martin Magnusson & Co. was founded in 1936 and is now run by the third and fourth generations of Magnussons. Both design and development is done at the headquarters in the small village of Hestra, Sweden. These gloves 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 models are handmade by some of the most experienced glove makers in Europe.
