There’s only so many bifolds a man can burn through until he gets bored. At least that was the case for Ekster founders, and 22-year-old Dutch students, Oliver and Rick. After meeting during a Fulbright scholarship in the US, they grew sick of the sight of the everyday wallet and believed it was about time guys had access to something a little more modern.

Not just content on creating a new concept and brand, they wanted it to be sustainable—making a positive impact on men’s daily lives, while having the smallest impact on the planet. What started as a mission to upgrade the traditional leather wallet, has now grown to an uber-impressive collection of essentials from camera cases to cardholders (and of course, the AirTag wallet).

How to Determine If Your Wallet Is Lost or Stolen

While it’s important to act fast, things may not be as bad as they first seem.The first step in dealing with a lost wallet is to determine whether it was lost or stolen. If you misplaced your wallet, it’s likely that you will find it soon.

However, if your wallet was stolen, you need to take different steps to protect yourself from identity theft. To decide if your wallet has been snatched, here are some signs to look out for:

  • You notice unauthorized charges on your credit card or bank account.
  • You receive notifications of credit applications or loans that you did not apply for.
  • You receive calls from debt collectors about debts that you did not incur.

What to Do If You Lose Your Wallet

After blaming your partner and checking the trash can, there are some more level-headed steps you should take before having a toddler-inspired meltdown.

  • Check your surroundings. Don’t panic. That’s not going to help anyone or make your wallet magically appear. Check your surroundings to see if you’ve simply misplaced it at home. Look in your car, bag, and coat pockets. If you still can’t find it, move calmly on to the next step.
  • Cancel your credit cards. Call your credit card companies and report your cards as lost or stolen. They will cancel your cards and issue new ones.
  • File a police report. If you suspect that your wallet was stolen, you should file a police report. This will help you recover your stolen wallet and protect yourself from identity theft. This step isn’t necessary if you believe you have simply lost your wallet on a bus or during a night on the town.
  • Notify your bank. If your wallet contains your checkbook or bank account information, it’s a good idea to notify your bank immediately. They can monitor your account for suspicious activity.
  • Replace your driver’s license. If your driver’s license was in your wallet, you’re going to need a new one pretty soon. You can do this by visiting your local DMV.
