We named our company Ekster after the Dutch word for Magpie, a deceptively smart bird with a penchant for collecting and hiding shiny things. In the spirit of the Magpie, we wanted to create classically attractive products with hidden tech to protect important everyday valuables. A flock of Magpies is also known as a 'Parliament', which is what we named our flagship wallet model. From that first wallet, all products in our collection have followed this theme. Three short years after our viral launch, we've become the world's largest smart wallet brand.
Our design process mirrors the blend of tradition and innovation that is characteristic of all our products. Each product is hand-crafted from the highest quality genuine leather available around the globe, sourced from LWG gold-rated tanneries which only serve top-of-the-line luxury leather brands. Every product that makes it through our design process adheres to 5 criteria that distinguish our products from others on the market: Efficiency, Safeguarding, Innovation, Quality Craftsmanship, and Style.
