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. Together they realized that the perfect wallet wasn't only a dream; they just needed to create it. What started as a chance encounter between two Dutch college students grew into a shared passion for entrepreneurship, a frustration with existing EDC products and finally, a thriving business.
