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.
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 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. As time passes, no two Ekster Vachettas will look the same.
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 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?
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.
