Two Man Show to International Operation
In April 1918, John Watson and Wayne Stanley started a small business selling hand-crafted gloves to Vancouver’s dock workers. Today, almost 100 years later, Watson Gloves has grown across Canada. We are among the country’s leaders of distributing hand protection; offering the widest range of quality gloves for work, home and play.

How did we get here? We have stayed true to our founders’ belief that quality materials and above-and-beyond customer service go hand-in-glove. We still make gloves. In fact, our artisans – with an average 20 years’ experience – put the same level of dedication and craftsmanship into every pair of gloves we make, as did our founders.

Perhaps more importantly, we have expanded our horizons to keep up with our customers’ changing needs. Our talented buyers travel the world over in search of the most innovative materials and designs so that we can offer the best gloves for any task: at work, at home, at play. From bustling cities to remote corners of our country and countries across the Atlantic, our team of sales reps and efficient distribution system make it easy to protect the hands of our customers.

At Watson Gloves, we do one thing, and we do it extremely well: we are the glove experts. Mr. Watson and Mr. Stanley would be proud to know that, even as we continue to grow, we continue to earn our reputation as Canada’s single source for hand protection.
