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.

He was very happy to see I got him an Ekster wallet. It's mostly the only thing he talks about! He loves whipping it out in front of others. His wallet went from being 3 inches thick to less then 1 inch.
I replaced a Ridge Wallet I'd been carrying for several years recently with the Ekster Aluminum Card Holder and couldn't be happier. A card holder like this is not for someone who pays with cash often. I don't, but like to have some on-hand just in case, and the strap is perfect for that. Where it really shines is the card fan button. It just works great. Your most-used cards are available in a few seconds. Really a design upgrade from the Ridge. Very good quality and finish. Looks nice. I've had people ask me about it standing in checkout lines and I can't help but help pitch it for Ekster.
Have been trying to find a quality wallet that can use the AirTag in. Had the parliament with a credit card like thing that held an AirTag but it made it really bulky. Then this came out and it is everything I’ve been looking for! It’s perfect size, isn’t bulky, and the push button fan like the parliament is amazing!
