We believe peace of mind starts with the essentials you carry with you on a daily basis. It is our mission to upgrade these essentials to modern standards and change the way you carry your valuables.

If you think about it, it's shocking that most wallets have no security built into them. A product which holds so much sensitive information and goes everywhere with you should be better safeguarded. So we decided to develop something both efficient and secure for your pockets. That's when Ekster® was born. A brand with the goal of optimizing the way you carry your everyday items. After meeting on a Fulbright scholarship in the USA, founders Rick and Olivier found that being Dutch wasn’t the only thing they had in common. They pitched their idea to a Kickstarter wallet enthusiast, Richard, and he was instantly sold. What started as a chance encounter between two Dutch college students grew into a shared frustration with existing EDC products and a thriving business.
