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 Ekster Wallet, 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

Our time in the tanneries at Santa Croce helped us to decide what material our new line of men’s Italian leather wallets would consist of. The prestigious Vachetta, an Italian premium leather, was our final choice. 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 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. As time passes, no two Ekster Vachettas will look the same.

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. The importance and attention to detail at every stage of leather production was inspiring to say the least. Not only are the raw materials of superior quality, but the Italians have a unique understanding of the tanning process.

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. But what makes Italian leather more superior than the leather produced by vegetable tanning in other places? Shop our Italian leather thin front pocket wallets today!
