Showa was founded in 1954 by Japanese ex-military Akeo Tanaka. In the army, he observed how the hands of his fellow soldiers suffered from extremely harsh conditions. Many of his comrades lost fingers due to the frostbite and during work accidents, despite using gloves. It inspired Tanaka to develop new working gloves that not only had to be sturdy but also functional. The two most important needs for a glove. The first Showa glove was the first work glove made of PVC. The work glove was designed with safety, comfort, and functionality in mind. The success of the first Showa glove led to the development of one successful glove after the other. Innovation and hand protection were the cornerstones of success and remained the basis of the Showa philosophy. In Japanese, Showa means finding a balance between different elements and is at the heart of the approach of developing all Showa products. Tanaka’s lifelong pursuit of protecting hands made Showa the world-leading company in hand protection.
