The Ekster Original Collection may have been born in 2018, but it doesn’t belong to any year: we made sure it would be timeless. Our sleek wallets made waves in the market when we released them. Everyone from Forbes to Mashable to CNN was covering what they called 'the world’s smartest wallet', a title we’re proud to have. The classic colors combined with modern features make this trackable smart minimalist wallet one that’ll make you look good today, tomorrow and every day.
FROM KICKSTARTER TO START-UP
Ekster was the result of a chance encounter between founders Olivier Momma and Rick Scharnigg. They were on exchange in the US when they met, and realized being Dutch wasn’t the only thing they had in common: they were also sick and tired of not having better options for basic carry items, like wallets. Three short years after the first Kickstarter, Ekster is now the first and only crowd-funded wallet to evolve into a start-up, with a team of sixteen and an office in the heart of Amsterdam.
THE FIRST SOLAR-POWERED WALLET
Ekster isn’t just a slim wallet, or a smart wallet, or even a trackable wallet. It is all those things and more. This is the world’s first solar-powered wallet: the wallet tracker card it uses to pair your phone with doesn’t need a charging cable or batteries. Instead, you just leave it out in the sun, and three hours of charge will give you over a month of usage. It’s environmentally friendly. It’s convenient. It makes sense. It’s the solution to a whole host of problems, not least of which is losing your wallet.
BACK TO THE NEST
These are our Originals, but we’ve never really left the lab (or the nest, in this case). We’re always building, and constantly looking for ways to push our products: more features, more colors, more options. We’ve done that this year with our Classic Collection, which is now live on our site for the first time ever. If you’re looking to upgrade your old trackable wallet, want to add a smart slim wallet to your collection, or want to explore our offerings, this is the place for you.

The look at feel of this wallet is outstanding. Since it has a unique design it also makes you feel unique as well. It takes some getting used to and if you overfill the side pockets it can get clunky, but I took it as an opportunity to cut down on the junk ive been keeping in my old wallet. Love it.
This wallet is so sleek, simple yet functional, and minimalistic. It has a touch of class but still can be tactical, and is in such a great form factor that can still carry all of my most essential items. This wallet helped me to throw out a lot of junk that I just didn’t need in my wallet. This has easily got to be the best wallet purchase I’ve ever made!
I have 4 cards in the ejector and fits fine, and I’ve placed my 2 ID’s in the inside pocket and I also have the tracker card on the back pocket and it works well and no complaints I love my wallet and super stylish
Worth the price. It's beyond anything I could ever imagine. Great wallet.
Being able to put my wallet in my pocket, while paying with a card, then slipping the card into the wallet without taking it out of my pocket, is a nice feature.
Very easy to make your own, and impressive quality.
Aluminum core, leather wrapped, smooth.
A great flex, with great specs.
Love my Ekster Fortuna, the leather is rich and of high quality. But, most importantly, it has helped me organize, and only keep what cards are absolutely needed on my person. And, my tracker has already served its purpose when I departed my home without my Fortuna, and I received a notification on my cell - just awesome.
The quality is phenomenal. The packaging is great too. I'm a sucker for good packaging. I bought the tracker as well and it works great and fits in the cardholder nicely. I would recommend if you want a sturdy and slim cardholder.
