    General Information

    Sandals from the monastery

    At the first sight, but even more so with detailed comparisons, it was clear that this is not only the best sandal currently made in a monastery, but also a remarkable sandal at all in terms of material, design and workmanship. The leather for this sandal comes exclusively from Central Europe. It is dyed through and finely polished. The flexible and at the same time abrasion-resistant branded rubber sole ensures the best walking comfort. All steps, from cutting the leather to the final "finishing touch" of the sole edges, are done by hand.

    Benedictine Shoemaking in a Young Monastery.

    These classic, simple leather sandals are made near Agen in Sainte-Marie de la Garde, the newly founded Benedictine monastery. The community was founded in 2002 by the Provençal abbey of Sainte-Madeleine when in Le Barroux there was a lack of space due to numerous new entrants. In Agen, a small group of monks began renovating and converting an older rural property. They laid the foundation for their monastic life and planned for work opportunities in the new congregational home. In keeping with the area, they planted over 400 walnut trees – walnuts have always been native to western France – and set up an apiary. The small community has since grown into a functioning new monastery with all the necessary facilities, including a chapel.
