Ekster—the Dutch word for magpie—was created as a holder for shiny, valuable things. But it soars above the flock of traditional wallets with its high-tech elements. That’s thanks to Dutch creators Olivier Momma and Rick Scharnigg, who met on a Fulbright scholarship in the U.S.. They were tired of traditional wallet designs, and envisioned an elevated approach that would marry old-world leatherworking with slim, modern innovation. Wallet enthusiast Richard Cannerman came on board to complete their dream team.
Together, they patented an easy-access cardholder system—where, with the click of an ergonomically-placed button, all cards are presented in a smooth, staggered manner. Premium leather captures a classic look, while the RFID-blocking interior helps keep the cards secure. A solar-powered tracker card is an optional added touch, helping to make sure your essentials are never out of hand.
