The Single Monk Strap by Alberto Fasciani is entirely handmade from vintaged leather in a rich dark brown color. We love the pared-down design of these monk straps a handsome straightforwardness made all the more graceful by its confident, dignified understatement. The vintaged leather further enhances this effect, as its well-worn look and feel lends a sense depth, character, and history to this historic style; originally developed as an easy-on and off work shoe in the monasteries of old Europe, the monk straps' unpretentious heritage is well-honored by this modern reinterpretation. Note also how the unpretentious design highlights the simple gold-toned buckle and invites appreciation to the leather's gently weathered texture and deep brown color.
