About Us

Since 1950, the Atwood family has been driven by a steadfast mission: to provide the most prestigious and sought-after goods by delivering unparalleled quality, precise sizing, timeless style, and a diverse selection. Our vision for every Atwood family offering is that of an industry leader in premium professional leather and lifestyle products, one that champions innovation and quality.


The Atwood family's journey in delivering quality work gloves to the hardworking hands of America began in 1950. Major Ralph W. Atwood, a veteran of World War II, embarked on this mission when he relocated to Oregon. He started by selling leather gloves out of a small van to local industrial factories and small grocery stores. With the unwavering support of his family, Red Steer Glove Company has transformed this vision into a lasting legacy in the glove industry. While Red Steer has gained nationwide brand recognition, we remain committed to our core values of exceptional customer service and unwavering product quality. By adhering to Ralph's original principles that place the customer at the forefront, emphasize the irreplaceable value of quality, and prioritize conducting business with the utmost integrity, Red Steer is poised to flourish for generations to come. With over half a century of extensive work glove expertise, we comprehend that diligent labor necessitates hard-working gloves. Red Steer continues to craft and distribute only top-tier products that consistently exceed customers' expectations in terms of comfort, durability, and value.


Our dedication extends to crafting enduring products with minimal environmental impact. The textiles and leather we use uphold an exceptionally high standard of quality and durability, all while exuding timeless style.


Our philosophy has always revolved around the belief that quality products possess enduring style and should be cherished. To us, our customers are an integral part of the Atwood family. With this in mind, we remain dedicated to delivering the utmost quality in materials, craftsmanship, and service to everyone who invests in our leather goods.


Our ultimate aspiration is for our products to be cherished and utilized for years, eventually becoming heirlooms passed down through generations. The imperfections, scratches, and scuffs that accumulate over time serve as tangible records of experiences and adventures, enhancing the character and beauty of our products. Leather, as a continually evolving material, matures gracefully with age, acquiring a unique patina of use. Crafting enduring products is an integral part of our heritage. We strive to strike a harmonious balance between creating something unique and something timeless. Our designers draw inspiration from both reliable, time-tested designs and fresh, innovative ideas. Their vision is to craft products that garner compliments and evoke delight. We hope that everything we create will bring you as much joy the day you discover it as it does when you pass it on as a treasured family heirloom.
