A Franciscan habit is the characteristic outer garment of a monk of Saint Francis monastery. Due to its cut and color it distinguishes the friar from other congregations. Moreover, this type of monk robe is made of wool, protecting clergymen from external factors, such as rain or blistering sun.

This interpretation of the medieval monk’s robe also has symbolic meaning - it reflects "living in obedience, without possessions and in purity". The habit refers to the outfit of Saint Francis from the turn of XIII and XIV century.
