The craft

Boghitoi_ (51)

Salcea, Suceava County, May 2014. Mr. Roata, now retired, manufactures oina balls within the precincts of the school he was formerly the headmaster of, and where he still helps train the oina team.
Due to low volume, oina gear cannot be made economically on an industrial scale. The task of providing the players with the necessary equipment is left to a handful of people that still manufacture it artisanally. They have become the guardians of this rare craft.
