Like a fine wine, leather only gets better with time. The natural quality of our top-grain leather ensures that each handmade wallet is unique, gaining distinctive marks as the leather ages. Over time, these premium leather wallets form perfectly to the shape of whatever pocket they are put in, preventing the flap from opening up and slimming down the overall profile. That's why the premium leather we work with is naturally stiff when unboxed, aging beautifully over time. Where production is concerned, happy leather really is better leather; the quality of a cow's life directly impacts the value, smoothness and marks that appear on the finished leather product.
In the age of plastic and metal, why do we continue to use leather? Perhaps it's the unique quality of craftsmanship – there is something beautiful about a handcrafted leather wallet, something inimitable and special. Our products are marked by suppleness that highly-trained leather workers achieve with a precise tanning method. We also 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.
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. Their craftsmanship is evident in the fusion of old-school leather work with modern techniques, through which we produce luxury leather wallets.
Our products are tanned under gold-rated LWG environmental protocols. This is the highest quality genuine leather available across the globe, and our tanneries serve only top-of-the-line luxury leather brands. It requires strength and precision to transform a hide into top-grain leather. While many assume that leather making is harmful to the animal kingdom, this is not necessarily true! All the bulls that provide our leather spend their lives disease-free and well-fed. All our leather is a waste product of the meat industry. We're dedicated to doing our part to reduce waste, and to lower the impact we have on the environment as much as possible.
But leather is only part of the story. How do you make the best handmade luxury men’s wallet? To us, modern craftsmanship means a nuanced mixing of old and new, fusing tradition and innovation. While one appreciates the stylish design and smooth texture of handcrafted wallets, it is the advanced technology packed inside that takes a premium men’s wallet from 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 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; in medieval ages, it was used for its water resistance and ability to store perishables. In the past, wholly organic methods of tanning were improvised using whatever natural materials were at hand. People would even use bodily excrement like feces to tan their leathers! Fortunately, leather producers today aren’t subject to such desperate conditions, and are able to enjoy modern leather production that is safer (and less gross) for those who produce it as well as those who purchase it.
I fell in love with Ekster wallets online and when I received mine I was not disappointed. In fact it was even more beautiful and functional than I thought.
If you're looking for a great sleek design, look no furthur. The cards fan out beautifully as long as you put in no more thennmaybe 4 cards (with bevels). I love it. The other wallets, if you done some research, always had some kind of rigid look so if youre looking for something thats leather and comfortable this is the wallet for you.
Absolutely love this wallet! it fits everything I need it to. I hardly carry cash so this was the perfect option for me, although on occasion I do have cash and this still works perfect! Thank you
The most amazing wallet I have ever purchased; not only does it look professional, it’s functionality is amazing. Can’t wait to show it off everywhere!
This is the best wallet I’ve ever owned. So sleek yet so luxurious. The customer service Matches their products!
I bought it for my fussy husband as an anniversary gift and he loved it !!
I’ve been using this wallet for about a month now and it is amazing. It can hold everything I need, and got rid of my previous bulky wallet. Definitely recommend this product.
I’ve been on the hunt for a functional wallet for a while now, and this has honestly been the most attractive and functional wallet I’ve found on the market. I cannot wait to see how the wallet ages as I bring it around with me!
I went from a ridge wallet to this. Best decision ever. I cannot express how happy I am. Get it. Now. Go on. Now.
Best wallet I have owned
Most elegant, premium quality, intelligent design I’ve ever experience in a wallet. I’ve gotten numerous compliments. This is a whole new generation of technology for your pocket!
It’s been awhile since i bought a wallet that had that lovely leather smell! It felt great in the hands & holds what i need. The pop up feature is the best. No more digging trying to get a card out. Definitely the best wallet I’ve ever had! And having the tracker card is a very nice bonus. Actually left my wallet at the store and my phone notified me just a little bit later before my next stop.
Got this as a gift for my fiancé he loves it very much ! Looking forward to investing more here.
The Fossil brand pocket wallet I’ve been using for the past 10 years held all my credit cards, my department ids, insurance cards and folded cash held on the back by a relatively strirong magnet. Your “Parliament “ needs some work. Large amounts of cash can’t fit in the wallet at one time,
Just opened the package and this is everything you want in a wallet! Quality is superior and is very sleek. Definitely a buy if you're interested in investing in a great wallet for the journey ahead!
Look no further, this is the wallet you need, soft leather, compact and easy to use. No more chipping or breaking a nail while digging out your cards. east to throw in big or small bags. Oh and it blocks RFID signals. This is fashion meets function people. Oh and people ask me - what is that when i bring it out. my wallet..lol
I bought this wallet for my boyfriend's 30th birthday and he LOVES IT. He really likes the slick design, the quality of the leather and the tracker card as well! So worth it! :)
Product is outstanding and the company is absolutely 1st class.
Very accommodating with any questions.
Strongly recommend product which is quite sturdy and fairly priced.
My husband wasn’t sure if he really needed a new wallet until he got this beauty! It’s very functional for him - he’s a minimalist. He even gets compliments from colleagues when he takes them out for lunch meetings. Thanks for a great product!
Great compact and secure design. I’m able to hold all necessary credit cards, drivers license, a little cash, and tracker. The wallet is high quality and not terribly bulky for all that it holds. The RFID security is a great added benefit in today’s world.
Husband was very satisfied with his gift. Just what he needed. He wanted a little more space for holding bills and not bulk up
I am super happy I found Ekster. Before I swapped to this wallet I was using the Ridge wallet. I always felt annoyed for my cards I had to store in the middle of the Ridge wallet which I found inconvenient. I love how the Ekster wallet fans out my cards and is super easy to access all of my cards. This is my go-to wallet now and I am very happy with it. The wallet is pure quality and totally worth every penny.
Clean ,sleek and efficient! GQ stylish Travels.
This wallet is perfect for someone who loves the classic bifold look with he ability to travel lighter which comes in handy depending on what they are doing or where they are going. I am a parliament guy but for anyone that's about the bifold with flexibility, this is the wallet
Dope... nothing more nothing less
I actually really like the wallet it's nice that its not so bulky but that does sometime cause comfort issues but sunce the wallet is so compact it can be adjusted to fit more comfortably. The tracker is pretty nice and cool also ive definitely put it to use once or twice and im glad i bouhht that as well
I bought this for my husband and he loves it!
Amazing piece of luxury!
