About Us

Always Innovating. Never Imitating.

SHOWA is synonymous with the highest degree of hand protection and innovation. SHOWA technology has forever changed the protective glove industry, what our hands are capable of and the impact they make on the environment.

Perfection is not a destination, it’s a journey driven by innovation; and by introducing several technological milestones in its glove styles, SHOWA has regularly raised the bar. Such innovations also underscore a commitment to continually make the best gloves even better.

Quality Beyond Compare

From the design to the construction, to the fabric to the feel – SHOWA gloves are created better to perform better and quality is woven into every fibre.

Each glove is developed by carrying out a detailed study of all quality parameters; design, suitability, ergonomics, suppleness, performance of the materials and manufacturing processes – making it possible to achieve the correct balance between safety, dexterity, performance and price.

Every possible resistance test is performed in SHOWA labs to ensure that each glove is fit for work before packaging and delivery. All production sites are ISO 9001 certified.

SHOWA has full control over its industrial ecosystem, enabling constant quality and perfection at every level. Amazingly, every single pair of gloves is still individually hand inspected at the end of the production process contributing to a ‘Zero Defect’ policy.

Pioneering Legacy

Finding a balance between different elements; this is the meaning of SHOWA in Japanese.

It’s this principle that lies at the heart of SHOWA’s philosophy – finding harmony between our surroundings and ourselves to provide solutions that protect people’s hands as well as the planet.

SHOWA pioneers quality, performance and protection to give ordinary hands and extraordinary abilities.
