Watson Gloves first started as a two-person shop selling gloves to Vancouver’s dock workers when they opened their doors in 1918.  Over 100 years later Watson is now distributing quality gloves across North America.

Their glove innovations play a large part to their success, such as changing the industry outlook for glove manufacturing as they have launched several sustainable products into the industrial market. In 2019 Watson Gloves launched their now well known Green Monkey™ landfill biodegradable gloves. In 2020 they were industry leaders by manufacturing gloves using 100% recycled plastic bottles.

Since 2020, Watson Gloves has diverted over 3 million (500mL) plastic water bottles destined for landfills.
