THE COLLECTION

The sleek nature combined with the soft Vachetta leather gives this new line of Ekster’s men’s Italian leather wallets a spectacular appeal. The Torino Tan features a bright catchy beige that will transform into a unique darker shade over time thanks to the ‘patina’ process. The Bologna Black is a classic black, perfect for those who want to keep it simple but cultured.  The Brescia Bronze will also get darker with time to obtain a color that is distinctive to only your wallet.

VACHETTA LEATHER

What makes Vachetta leather unique is that it’s completely untreated; it uses no chemical protectors or moisturizing oils, giving it a soft and smooth appearance. Made from a bull’s shoulder, Vachetta leather ages beautifully and durably. While this kind of leather is prone to marks and stains because of the lack of protectors, it is distinctive because of a process known as ‘patina’. The leather starts off as a light beige color and becomes darker over time as it’s exposed to sunlight.

OUR TRIP TO TUSCANY

Within Italy, the highest quality leather is produced in Santa Croce, Tuscany - the world’s most reputed leather manufacturer. We planned a visit during the leather carnival in February to truly understand Italian artisanship and leather production on a much deeper level. The resilience, supple nature, and varied range of colors offered were perfect for Ekster and our new dream-collection.

SANTA CROCE

Santa Croce thrives on leather production today. But in the middle of the 18th century, it was quite a poor town relying on inadequate agriculture. It was only at the beginning of the 19th century that the town started to gain recognition for leather tanning. What makes this leather stand out is the natural tanning methods adopted by the Italians. They use vegetable tanning, which ensures exceptional quality and versatility.
