Tangled in Ten Twisted Tentacles!

Not just an example of alliteration but the story of our Hibiscus. 

Octobiscus- a happy fusion of hibiscus and octopus glides gracefully on the side of a House Of Tamarind Lounge shirt. The precisely placed playful motif adds drama to the shirt as well as the overall ensemble with the sudden burst of colors on the back.
