Welcome to TransylvanianMonk

Hello, I'm Leontin Calugar, leather enthusiast. I live in the historical area of Transylvania, Romania, hence the name of my shop Transylvanian Monk ("Calugar" translates to Monk). I'm happily married and I have 2 children, 1 dog and 12 fish. My spare time activities include gardening, my awesome dog Baghera and flowers. I love visiting flea markets and rescuing beautiful but forgotten metal parts and what not. Often these parts end up being used in the bags and other leatherwork I make. More »
