EKSTER is in the space of optimizing every day carry. Creating leather products such as wallets, key, phone & laptop cases among others.

Founded in 2015, by Olivier Momma and Rick Scharnigg, we grew to 5 people and USD $1mln+ revenue in the first year focusing on e-commerce distribution channels. 

In December 2015 we have successfully introduced the EKSTER Wallet, RFID blocking smart wallets with a fast card-access mechanism and a tracker inside. The two-way tracking feature prevents you from ever losing your wallet or phone again once paired though our app. During our crowdfunding campaigns we exceeded our goals significantly selling over 10.000 units in the first year.
