Yoonaan – यूनान Cotton Dressing Gown / Robe
The Yoonaan robe is hand block printed on 100% fine soft cotton with carved woodblocks in Jaipur, India.
The art of block printing in India has not changed for hundreds of years and is a craft that is passed down though generations of printers who, with incredible accuracy and skill, are able to create the most intricate designs. Each layer of colour is carved in mirror image into a woodblock and these blocks are then used one at a time to apply the design onto the surface of the fabric which is stretched out along a long printing table. This level of handmade craftsmanship is something that we at Blocked by Clark love to see and wish to continue supporting.
Yoonaan meaning Greece in Hindi is inspired by the scenes in towns and villages dotted around the wild and wonderful Greek Islands. Scattered across the bright white houses are striking wooden windows, doors and banisters in blues and greens that have infused this print. The Cobbled street inspired pattern winds its way through the scene mimicking the maze of lanes in Mykonos town complete with cactus plants and window boxes bringing the island scene to life. Yoonaan was exclusively developed for the traditional art of hand block printing.
Due to the handmade process variation in the colour and print work should be expected, so no two designs will ever be exactly the same making each piece unique!
