Smoke Sauna Sisterhood


Smoke Sauna Sisterhood

Anna HintsEstonia – 2023

The Vana-Võromaa (region in South Estonia) smoke sauna tradition known as “savvusanna kombõ” is one of connecting family and friends to cleanse body and soul inside a place of peace and contemplation. Conflicts are left outside. In the darkness of smoke sauna, women share their innermost secrets and intimate experiences. Through a sense of communion, women wash off the shame trapped in their bodies and regain their strength.
