We work with green factories, build products that last, and use recycled paper, however, this is not enough. In a linear economy built on a "take, make, and dispose" approach, we're taking it circular: getting the most out of what we already have, instead of creating more waste in the world.
WINDSHIELD TO WALLET
Car windshields have an invisible layer of something called PVB, which keeps the glass from shattering on impact. It makes recycling windshields more of a challenge, but PVB is super versatile, and its minimal carbon footprint makes it a far greener alternative to the more commonly-used and toxic PVC.
A CIRCULAR ECONOMY
Every year, 14 million cars are scrapped in the U.S. alone. Two kilograms of viable recyclable material can be foraged from each windshield. Repurposing that material is just one way in which we can reuse and innovate with what we have.
WHAT'S VEGAN LEATHER LIKE?
The biodegradable material used in our recycled edition can be processed back into the cycle of use, and actually feels like the real deal. The 'leather' we've made is scratch-resistant, water-resistant, and looks fresh for longer than any other material we've tested.
It's not "actual" leather, but you wouldn't know if we didn't tell you. It's a testament to the viability of sustainable practices that the 'leather' we processed from PVB resin is indistinguishable from real cowhide. You can rest easy knowing that it was ethically-sourced, and you'll be able to recycle it when you decide to move on to another wallet.
I got say this is one of the best wallets I ever owned. I love everything about it like the materials the craftsmanship that was put into this product is just so easy to apply your cards into the slots and also the money strap and the spring button is just looks and feel so classy. I got say I love this wallet.
I’ve researched a lot of different brands for slimmer wallets, and even though this is not the slimmest one out there, it was perfect for me. I love the card mechanism where all you have to do is push a button to access your cards. The tracker is a good thing to have to, especially if you’re traveling.
I’ve had a Ridge wallet for two years and I never was completely satisfied because I always had a fumble for my Credit cards to find the right one and then I saw a video of Ekster , it had everything i wanted it in a wallet to access my credit cards immediately. I’ve had it for a week now and it’s been awesome. Best wallet I’ve had so far !!!!
Honestly the worst thing about my old wallet was that the cards would rub against the leather and slowwwly wear out. The aluminum shell and sleek leather cover almost completely negate that issue. And it’s so compact!
