Mjohoro, Mhoba, Flamboyant, and the Tanzanian Christmas Tree are all names given to a tree that flowers spectacularly in December. It’s so striking that it is sometimes used as a motif in woodcarvings like those that can be found on massive doors on the island of Zanzibar and along the Swahili Coast.

This is the second pattern in a collection inspired by the intricately carved wooden doors on Zanzibar. The remaining patterns will be released as follows:
