This grey-green hue is reminiscent of fragrant herbs drying in the sun. In the Mediterranean, the grayish leaves of the bay laurel leaf and the olive tree not only gave rich flavor to local foods, but were used as crowning wreaths on the heads of the victors in the Greek Olympic Games.
The numerous varietals of cacti inspired many uses of this color throughout time: they offered colorful fruit as food, textile dyes, and their fibers were used as a material for a variety of applications. This color is similar to the natural pigments avaliable before the synthetic greens of the mid-century dyeing processes were created.
Cactus is a color grounded in nature that will relax and soothe your senses.
