Our leather is sustainably sourced and mindfully processed using ECCO Leather’s new DriTan™ technology, the world’s leader in leather creation. Each leather accessory is handcrafted from exclusively American and Italian hides that have been processed at Gold Rated tanneries. The Leather Working Group (LWG) grants Gold Ratings to only the most environmentally-friendly tanneries and sets the standard for ethical leather production.
One of the most attractive things about leather is the way it ages. Like a fine wine, it gets better over time. We employ a two-toned finish to our leathers, giving them a distinctive look and color that will endure as the wallet softens, bends and forms to the way it is used, whether in pocket, purse or hand. Each wallet becomes utterly unique over time, while maintaining its sturdiness and shape.
We take our responsibility to the earth very seriously. We work with ECCO to ensure all our leather is tanned under gold-rate LWG environmental protocols, and comes from sources that have the highest level of animal welfare. All our leather is a by-product of the meat industry and comes from bulls that live disease-free and well-fed. As a leading wallet company, we are committed to setting a market standard for ethically sourced materials.
To us, modern craftsmanship means a nuanced mixing of old and new, fusing tradition and innovation. It is the advanced technology packed inside that takes a premium men’s walletfrom being a useful fashion accessory to a personalized, high-tech juggernaut of comfort and security. An appreciation for traditional methods, a commitment to sustainable practices, and an eye on the future of security: now that’s craftsmanship.
THE TANNING PROCESS
The tanning process is the most intrinsic part of producing luxury leather wallets. It's a method that can be traced back to the ancient Greeks, 3000 years ago. During this stage, the leather is dried and treated, permanently changing the structure of the proteins that make up the hide using tannins (hence the name tanning!). Leather craftsmen work meticulously in our factories to create genuine top-grain leather in a variety of colors and textures.
The beauty and allure of leather is not something new. It was revered by Pharaohs in ancient Egypt, and has been ubiquitously used over time as a versatile material as well as an undying sign of status and class. Its protective ability made it popular amongst foot soldiers of Ancient Greece and Rome, and was often used for its water resistant quality. Leather has endured throughout time precisely because it’s both functional and beautiful.

Nice and sturdy. Love the quality. I don't feel like it will get crushed in my pocket over time.
So I wasn’t even sure i would like this wallet so i decided to give it a try. I think i’m going through a mid life crisis cause i’ve bought about 10 different wallets in the last 3 months. when i received this wallet i liked that it was small and compact. Also it was blue which is my favorite color. the switch blade design with my most used cards i love. also the extra storage for more cards. i have a feeling i’ll be buying another wallet.
Initially I bought it for me,that same day I placed the order my friend called me and I learnt from him that he lost his wallet,that was when I understood I was going to give him the wallet Ingot for myself.He was very happy and his happiness tripled when he saw the card,I don’t really care about technology like that but it seemed to get him excited with the whole gift
I received my first ever Ekster Card Holder today. I chose the aluminum case model. It is both lighter and trimmer than a similar product that I replaced with this. I especially like organizing the wallet so you only place your six most used cards in the holder to be presented when a button is pushed. This is far more manageable then my prior manufacture’s case where you had to push up all of the cards together and hope that they didn’t drop out and fall on the floor. The capacity in the Ekster still holds more than the six primary cards, but those lesser used cards are placed in a different area of the case. I also like the band to hold some currency for non card accepting merchants. I am very pleasef with the product!
When you have carried a full wallet for over 70 years the cardholder wallet takes some getting used to. If you follow the instructions they work great and I like mine, but you must evaluate what you must carry with you every day.
My husband loves this small Parliament wallet. Leather is soft and pliable and feels like good quality. Fortunately he’s never carried a lot of unnecessary stuff so It was mostly easy to get him to pare down to fit this wallet. The only thing he still misses is all the cash bills he used to carry. But he’s likes how slim the Parliament wallet is so has accepted carrying less money.
It's a great product that makes sense. Your only carrying what you need which is great and liberating in itself but more importantly what you carry now is well organized, easily accessible and Screams class act. I
get compliments every time I use it. It's one of the few products I feel comfortable gifting to family and friends because I know that they will be getting a quality well made and classy gift that they will love using
