Texture Gallery: Fabric

These photos have been created by Smashing Magazine readeres in our Smashing Texture Contest1. What can you do with them? You can use all textures for both private and commercial projects for free, without any restrictions whatsoever. However, you are not allowed to offer these files for download; please respect the interestes of over 300 participants of our contest. Please also consider the license information attached to the .zip-archives you download from our server. When it comes to usage of textures, different photographers may have different opinions and intentions.

Some .zip-archives also contain further images of the same photographer. The file size of .zip-archives is between 1 and 15 Mb (depending on image resolution) which makes over 700 Mb space storage. This is also a reason why we have decided to not offer all textures in one single archive. It is very likely that due to huge amount of data and manual work some links contain errors — please inform us2 about them. And sorry for inconvenience.

As you can see, it derives from a 70ies hippie shirt I found in the garbage more than 30 years ago. Made from 100% polyester, so all the colors are as pretty as on the first day. I always wanted to paint a wall of my living room with this texture, and therefore kept the shirt in a drawer all the time.

    Heh? I took 5 fabric textures, and I can’t imagine that the quality of them wasn’t good enough to stand next to these.
    Weird. :/

    Hey ViniMan , I think it is a matter of overload. With so many photos submitted it could not have been a very orderly process! As far as the selection criteria goes.
