Besto Redding, best known as simply Besto, was founed in 1920 by Mr van der Belt and Mr van der Stouwe in Zwartsluis, The Netherlands. The name Besto is a combination of the first three letters of each surname and they began by producing boat collision bags, better known today as boat fenders, from rattan and cork filling.

They soon began designing and manufacturing personal safety equpiment mainly using cotton, kapok, and cork. As the new leisure market began to open up Besto began specialising in buoyancy aids, lifejackets, and other floatation devices for inland, offshore, and professional use. New materials such as Polyethlene foam and synthetic fabrics enabled Besto to modernise.
