12 Websites to Download Free Textures & Patterns

download-textures-patterns

For every creative designer and 3D digital artist texture backgrounds are an essential design asset. There are a number of sites that offer free textures and tilable patterns. But it’s a sort of time consuming to search and find the best places to download free backgrounds.

As a creative designer, I feel the need myself. Skimming through tens of hundreds of textures from various sources every time when I need specific textures is repetitive. So, today I have collected 11 best websites where I can download quality texture resources and can go back to them when I need any specific textures  I hope this collection will also be useful to you.

There are also several design blogs that offer free texture packs, for example you can see our textures and backgrounds section where you’ll find a number of high quality textures.

Importantly, each website / blog listed below has its own terms of use. So, you are requested to check their license carefully before downloading and using their textures / patterns in your designs and prints.
