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.
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.
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.
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 main reason I got this for my husband was because he loses his wallet constantly. It's been a few weeks and the tracker has helped him numerous times. It fits nicely in his pocket. The way the cards pop up makes it super easy to grab whichever card you need right away. And it looks classy and attractive. Very happy with this purchase.
First time not having a traditional bifold wallet and this one turned out to be amazing. It’s sleek, slim, and appealing to the eye.
The Parliament Wallet is smart, sleek, and the best decision I ever made. Perfect for decluttering your wallet, it ensures you only carry what you need, and you can access it quickly. As someone who loses their wallet a lot even just among desk clutter, the tracking card was a huge bonus for me too. Highly recommended!
Wanted a minimal design and the Vachetta Parliament was a great choice for me because I like the feel of the leather. Tracker was a plus but it does lose the skinny appeal of the wallet alone.
I purchased the Parliament wallet with the tracking card for my husband. We are not overly “techy” people, but we love the tracking feature. He usually loses his phone and now I don’t have to search around the house for a phone that’s on silent. It’s sleek, chic and fits everything he needs. I’ve already recommended it to all the wives I know for good gifts.
I've tried several minimalistic card holders/wallets and nothing comes close to Ekster's Parliament. The price might be high compared to rival products, but spending that $10-$20 is worth it as no other wallet in the current market can beat Parliament Wallet in the minimalistic wallet market. I know for a fact that I will be upgrading to Ekster's top line product after this wallet.
I like the easy way that all my cards come out makes me feel like a spy in a way. My wallet is not clunky anymore.
I really enjoy how slim and functional it is, plus not having to sit on my bulky wallet anymore! I also enjoy piece of mind against pickpockets with my wallet in my front pocket now.
Perfect size and functionality. It's minimal but doesn't give off the minimal feel. Made of great quality materials and looks awesome. I've already had a couple people ask me about it and where I got it.
I rarely, if ever, have cash nowadays so this wallet makes everything much cleaner with my daily carry. Ease of access with a nice level of security and loss-prevention features makes this wallet a solid choice! I have already recommended this to a few of my friends and may be sending one as a gift near Christmas.
