Showa | The Best Gloves For Any Application


For more than 100 years, Showa Best Gloves has led the personal protective equipment industry through a rich tradition of hand protection firsts.

Best® was the first glove maker to produce a wrinkled-finish coated work glove with our Nitty Gritty® in the 60s and 70s. In the 70s and 80s, we helped transform chemical hand protection as the innovator of PVC classics such as the industry’s all-time best seller, the Black Knight®. And we revolutionized the exam glove market in the 90s as the first company to deliver a latex alternative with the introduction of the revolutionary N-DEX®, the world’s first disposable nitrile exam glove. That heritage continues to this day with firsts like the N-DEX® Free, the world’s only disposable nitrile glove free of chemical accelerators commonly associated with Type IV dermatitis and rashes.
