Yohei Fukuda - The art of shoemaking - The Monk

I have more than half a year ago blogged about Master Yohei Fukuda (Japan) on this blog (here) and now I was following up on some of his great creations. I sampled this very beautiful rendition of a monk strap in espresso calf leather. This monk is so simple and very rich in colour, reminds of the one I received from Master Cliff Roberts of Northampton earlier this year. Well done Master Yohei Fukuda.
