LIMITED EDITION

VACHETTA COLLECTION


For the first time ever, we’re releasing a limited edition Italian leather collection: three new colors, but only three hundred wallets. Lovingly tanned in Tuscany, these Vachetta leather wallets are unique, stylish and impossible to lose. Sign up below to be the first in line to claim one of these limited editions.

THE COLLECTION

The sleek nature combined with the soft Vachetta leather gives this new line of Ekster 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 that our new line would consist of wallets made from the prestigious Vachetta, an Italian premium leather. What makes Vachetta leather unique is that it’s completely untreated; it uses no chemical protectors or moisturizing oils. This is what gives 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. This naturally tanned leather will ensure that as time passes, no two Ekster Wallets 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?
