Sassafras is a mix of browns and grays inspired by my favorite pastime, rock climbing. Within two hours of my home I can climb on granite slabs and basalt columns. The rocks are mottled in appearance and because of the dampness, there is always a some sort of vegetation growing in the cracks, adding a touch of green to the dark colors.
