The Ultra-Luxe Brand Combining Precious Materials And Celestial Metals To Create What Might Just Be The Most Highly Sought-After Accessories Of The Year.
The luxury specialists at Bejeti challenge the idea of mainstream wallet design by incorporating some of the world’s most precious and rare materials.
The universe has gifted our planet with a sampling of astonishing materials, and yet, humanity is just now scratching the surface of what is possible with many of them.
But innovative new ultra-luxe wallet brand Bejeti (pronounced ‘bee jé tee’), is paving the way for change with its breath-taking range of meticulously designed, unisex accessories, and it’s about to change the way you think about fashion forever.
Based in Pittsburgh, USA, Bejeti has recently launched its premiere line of one-of-a-kind wallets, with each made from one or more of these extraordinary materials and combining precious metals forged by the hands of expert craftsmen, rare celestial elements, and sustainably repurposed materials. From meteorite and titanium to mosaic Damascus, it’s an approach to luxury accessories that is disrupting the fashion world as we speak, with the brand’s ecological line even using polystyrene plastic harvested from Earth’s waterways.
So, if you’re looking to seriously up your style game in 2022 and add something truly and show-stoppingly special to your accessory collection, then be prepared to have all of your expectations blown away.
Bringing form, fashion and function to an everyday accessory, Bejeti’s wallets are entirely unique, and the brand’s innovative new range is currently the only one in the world of its kind. Each piece features a sophisticated and refined design with an artistic nod towards cubism and futurism – ensuring that even with the collection itself, no two wallets are the same.
According to Eduardo Sande, founder and CEO of Bejeti, the brand’s mission is a straightforward one.
“We want to give individuals the chance to experience the universe’s most extraordinary materials every day. We just happen to achieve that with our bespoke wallets; functional art made to be held and experienced,” he says.
“We believe people are as unique as their fingerprints, and our wallets are designed to showcase that type of individuality and expression.”
Looking at Bejeti’s stunning wallets, it’s hard not to fall head over heels in love with them. Each beautiful detail commands attention, and is a celebration of functional art – and while innovation and individualism are evident throughout, practicality has also been carefully considered. Every piece features an easily removable money clip, hypoallergenic silicone bands to accommodate up to 15 cards, and a signature triangular notch for ease of card access.
Bejeti wallets also include a multi-layered counterfeit prevention system and certificate of authentication, with each masterpiece imbued with the striking characteristics of the materials it was crafted from to create a singular artistic experience worthy of all who carry it.
The Planetesimal wallet is a particular stand-out piece from the collection, exuding an other-worldly quality based around the unlikely incorporation of meteorite. Then, there’s Number 22, which is quite literally forged from the stars and takes its name from its primary element – titanium – a material produced when white dwarf stars go supernova.
The Artificer is equally intriguing, having been hand-forged from mosaic Damascus steel by renowned master blacksmith, Robert Eggerling in a rare and complex creation that effortlessly encapsulates the beauty of wealth. But these three offerings are, of course, just for starters – and there are another four inspired designs to choose from.
“Sneakers, watches, even cars have become collectable pieces of art, and Bejeti’s are no different,” said Sande. “I wanted to bring that same spirit of invention and creativity forward, and challenge the idea that personal accessories are confined to traditional materials like animal hides. Bejeti gives people the chance to carry their own piece of art with them, wherever they go.”
There’s no denying that the brand concept is an inspired one. And for founder Eduardo, the story behind it couldn’t get much more ‘American Dream’. A first generation Uruguayan American, his parents immigrated from Montevideo, Uruguay to become U.S. citizens, – and like many immigrant Americans, Eduardo’s story begins with risk, a drive for a better life, hard work and ingenuity.
At the age of 18, he began his first internship in industrial manufacturing, before going on to become the first member of his family to graduate with a university degree – in his case, in chemical engineering. What followed was a long period of time spent developing an appetite for fine designs and constructs – which is where these two unlikely strands – chemical engineering and fashion – first began to weave together in his mind.
Fast forward to today, and it’s clear that Bejeti has been born not just of a desire to succeed, but of a passion and desire to create something unlike anything that has ever been seen before. And suffice it to say that Eduardo has succeeded in doing just that.
