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.

Best wallet since the money clip was invented
I went from Tumi wallet to this beautiful thing. Very minimalistic yet modern. Also works a fidget spinner type of deal without the spinning. More like a fidget popper. It’s very satisfying to push the button multiple times. I had a small issue which customer service quickly resolved. They went beyond what needed to be done to remedy the situation. Excellent customer service says a lot about a company and its products this company has one of the best customer service experience I have ever went through.
Remember that episode of Seinfeld...you know, the one where George's enormous wallet is giving him back pains? Well that was me about a week ago...boy how things change. The Parliament wallet has raised the bar...It is just incredible. My old wallet quite literally looked like a Seinfeld prop, the thing was massive. I was always leaving it places because I didn't want to keep it in my pocket because it made it uncomfortable to sit on! The Parliament wallet is so sleek and has a truly minimalist feel to it that when it is in my pockets I forget my wallet is there. I am never going back, I am a converted believer in Eskter's product lineup that I will be shopping there for Father's Day...Dad's favorite son, here I come. Buy this product, you will NOT regret it. Thank you.
Very glad I made this purchase after reviewing all the options available. Product has a high-end feel with premium details. The wallet is clearly made to last and be used. Enough room for all my cards and the tracker was a great add-on. Would definitely recommend this type of wallet for anyone looking to reduce the bulk of a traditional wallet. Great innovation with the card holder and a conversation starter.
I love this thing! It's compact enough to fit in your front pocket without the bulk of a normal wallet and the card ejection button is a very welcome feature that I've never had with any wallet I've ever owned. Definitely worth the price tag!
I bought this wallet for my loved one and he immediately fell in love with it! He adores the aesthetic and convenience of the entire wallet and takes it with him everywhere he goes! The packaging was also incredibly elegant which made the surprise even more special. I highly recommend this product for any and everyone. You won’t regret it!
The wallet is great, the leather is high quality. Shipping was right on time and the packaging was very high quality. The wallet breaks in very quickly after a few days of use and the card flip works flawlessly.
Ordered my Senate Cardholder after months of looking at potential solutions. I didn't need advanced metal technologies that set off metal detectors nor did I need a wallet that looked tactical, I just wanted a practical solution that fit in my front pocket to make my chiropractor happy that I wasn't ignoring her advice.
Upon receipt the packaging was exceptional and reminded me of several European luxury brands and elevated my immediate value perception. After loading my registry of flexible friends and their folding cash equivalents I felt immediate gratification by my latest acquisition.
Well done my friends, well done. You've made a customer for life.
I am pleased to say that I am happy with what I received. Not only did the wallet meet my expectations but it also exceeded them! Great quality leather, great size and concept, and awesome tracking feature! Thanks for a great quality product!
Let me start by saying I never leave reviews for any type of product, but I felt I needed to just in case you were on the fence about this product. I've owned several minimalist wallets in the past be Trayvax, Dango and now Ekster. While the other brands make good products, the Ekster Aluminum Cardholder is by far the best wallet I've owned to date. The slim profile is amazing and the push button card eject works flawless. I'm glad I made the decision to purchase the cardholder as it handles all of my credit cards, work ID and cash all in one slim package. Thanks for making a great product.
Outstanding. It’s not often you unpack an item from the mail and think WOW! This leather case is gorgeous. It’s sleek, functional, roomy and for us guys, smells great!!! That new leather aroma is intoxicating ! If I had the need I would buy another. But for now I will enjoy this treat and look for what other new goodies Ekster offers. Buy one and don’t look back.
This is the wallet I've been looking for. I've received and bought several wallets over the years. Each had its own unique set of headline features but none, until now, worked well for me. This one finally checked off all of the boxes in my list.
I'm able to easily fit 3 embossed and 2 flat cards in it along with a couple of bills, the tracker card and a couple of other ID cards. The mechanism for accessing my cards is smooth and reliable. It's beautifully made, of a convenient size and is, in my opinion, an excellent value.
The tracker card and app are slick. Thus far I've only used them for the sake of learning how they work, and not because I actually needed to find a misplaced wallet. The tracker card doesn't necessitate buying batteries or to plugging it into a USB outlet to charge. Instead it is charged by sunlight -- a great, environmentally- and wallet-friendly touch, pun intended.
My search for the right wallet for me is officially over.
I love this wallet. It fits all the cards I need. It does start out a bit stiff when it's first unboxed but it softens and contours amazingly after the first week of use. The leather feels great in my hands and I don't think I'll ever go back to regular wallets again. A must have for any man or woman who is looking for that forever wallet. Also the tracker is awesome. If i ever need to find out where i misplaced my wallet just open the app and ring it. Find it instantly.
Ekster Keyring grabbed my attention at early stages of the Kickstarter campaign. Everyone is using keys and as we have multiple choices for other daily use things (f.e. wallets) there were close to none that would make the key management easier, simpler and worry-free (with the tracker). After using it for couple months I can safely recommend and assure those who wonder if it's what they say it is - well, it is.
