The Origin of Bejeti
THE BRAINS BEHIND THE BRAND
Affectionately known as “The Steel City”, Eduardo Sande calls Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, home. A befitting home-base for the next generation of precious metals craftsmanship given the history of this centuries old manufacturing haven.
A first generation Uruguayan American, Eduardo’s parents immigrated from Montevideo, Uruguay. Like many immigrant Americans, Eduardo’s success story begins with risk, a drive for a better life, hard work and ingenuity. Never shying away from a challenge, Eduardo became the first of his family to graduate college from Penn State University with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering, and later acquiring an MBA from Carnegie Mellon University.
Inspiration can often begin with a defiant trailblazer; which by definition is a pioneer, an innovator, and someone willing to take risks and go in a path that isn't already there. True inspiration often begins watching those who refused to take no for an answer, win. Watching his father and grandfather create and force iron to bend to both will and vision, creating furnishings is where Eduardo’s inspiration began. 20 years later, the legacy of defiant fine design and construct trailblazing continues with the creation of Bejeti, an ultra-luxe, ultra-craftsmanship wallet design compelling both the rare and most common materials on earth and beyond to yield to the will and vision of Bejeti.
“WHAT WOULD IT BE LIKE IF YOU LIVED EACH DAY, EACH BREATH, AS A WORK OF ART IN PROGRESS? IMAGINE THAT YOU ARE A MASTERPIECE UNFOLDING EVERY SECOND OF EVERY DAY, A WORK OF ART TAKING FORM WITH EVERY BREATH.”
When Pablo Picasso created Cubism, he built form from simplicity, dimension from color. There was nothing that revolutionized and impacted art in the 20th century with such influence. It’s as though paintings were “engineered” to be expressions of individuality, through the eyes of a futurist.
Sculpture, too, became structural and elemental, almost architectural in form, with both surface and angle creating what line and color could not. Untamable. Risky. Perfect in context and view.
With Bejeti, the will of the artist lives in function. In materials that feel like art, but perform with an expectation that they will never be flawed by time.
Bejeti asks, why would we reserve art for a gallery? Why not view art, feel art, and use art every day? The spirits of both cubism and futurism are alive today in Bejeti wallets, and as we have attained artisan mastery of materials, will functionally continue to live for generations.
MODERN. ORIGINAL. BEAUTIFUL.
“THOSE WHO HAVE THE GIFT OF CREATIVE EXPRESSION IN UNUSUALLY LARGE MEASURE DISCLOSE THE MEANING OF THE INDIVIDUALITY OF OTHERS TO THOSE OTHERS.”
Our product lines salute the ingenuity of humanity's most common and uncommonly used materials, while simultaneously serving notice to the cosmos that it is next. We are the only wallet of its kind. Original, unduplicated, and prototypal with each wallet created from extraordinary craftsmen; each wallet unique as a snowflake’s pattern. It is true, authentic craftsmanship worthy of its value.
Bejeti wallets celebrate those who appreciate and crave rarity. Those who seek out hand-crafted pieces of art and indulge themselves in fine design. Rarer forged materials used to design Bejeti wallets commemorate personal achievement and stature with a bespoke accessory designed to represent the rarity of the person as much as the rarity of their achievement.
Each wallet is inherently unique and different from the previous, and next one. Each wallet pays homage to both the heavens and enduring human innovation and individuality.
“THE SOUL IS PLACED IN THE BODY LIKE A ROUGH DIAMOND, AND MUST BE POLISHED, OR THE LUSTER OF IT WILL NEVER APPEAR.”
Bejeti pushes the boundaries of engineering and metalworking with hand forged ultra-luxe wallets crafted out of Damascus steel, Titanium Damascus, and Mokume Gane to name a few.
Bejeti’s commitment to using the best materials available on earth (and beyond) led to Titanium being the structural foundation of the Bejeti wallet. Known by metalsmiths for its strength and lightweight composition, the Titanium Damascus line sets a new standard for an accessory built for durability and longevity.
The process and pressure used to forge these precious metals into works of art are complex and difficult to replicate. Each wallet reveals its most authentic beauty, coming to life as the ultimate canvas for the world to see and admire.
“IMAGINATION WILL OFTEN CARRY US TO WORLDS THAT NEVER WERE. BUT WITHOUT IT WE GO NOWHERE.”
A wallet made of meteorite? Yes.
What could be more luxurious and otherwise intangible than meteorite?
When a Bejeti wallet is described as “otherworldly”, it actually is. If our galaxy sees fit to gift more meteorite, Bejeti will welcome it to earth with open arms, ready to transform it into hand-crafted pieces of art that will last for millennia to come.
SUSTAINABILITY IS LIFE
Bejeti is committed to demonstrating how humans can create the amazing out materials of the earth, the stars, and even man’s waste. Bejeti's ecological line is preventing pollution from collecting in earth's oceans, landfills and waterways.
Recycling our resources is one way we can all respect a planet that has given us so much. Bejeti commits to manufacturing products that originate from the environment in which we all live, preserving that environment, and committing our lives to a celebration of earth and sky.
Bejeti provides heirloom wallets that can be passed down from grandparent to grandchild. Generational by design, Bejeti wallets are crafted to be timeless works of art.
While the body and backbone of our wallets will last for decades, our proprietary silicone bands are designed as replaceable to ensure each generation of Bejeti carriers is as immortal as the genius and wealth of their legacy.
Each Bejeti wallet comes with a certificate of authenticity as any piece of original art.
