For a product that is by your side all day long, and contains so much
valuable information, we were shocked that they had so little security
built into them. We decided that we needed to develop something both
efﬁcient and secure for your pockets. That’s when Ekster was born. A brand
with the goal of optimizing the way you carry your everyday items.
Ekster® was brought to life in Rotterdam by three Dutch founders who
shared a frustration with the every day carry products offered in the
market today. Since our launch in 2015, our team of 3 has expanded to
a company of 16 passionate employees. We are now the largest smart
wallet brand worldwide, with products now available in hundreds of
stores ranging from Macy’s to Selfridges.
Our design process mirrors a blend of tradition and innovation that is
so characteristic of our products. Each product is hand-crafted from the
highest quality genuine leather available around the globe sourced from
LWG gold-rated tanneries who serve only top-of-the-line luxury leather
brands. Every product that makes it through our design process adheres
to 5 criteria that distinguish our products from the others on the market:
Efﬁciency, Safeguarding , Innovation, Quality Craftsmanship and Style.
