Seamless patterns are great for a vast number of things, the biggest benefit of using seamless patterns is visible when they’re implemented online. Websites with large background images can take a lot longer to load than those who utilize either a solid color, or seamless background images such as the patterns below. This particular collection focuses on paper textures, brilliant for all kinds of design.
There has always been great resources available online for designers and developers, and I’ve been using these myself since I started making websites some twelve years ago – that’s the fantastic thing about the web community. Now I’m using Subtle Patterns as my way of giving back to the next (and current) generation of web designers and developers or anyone else who needs some high quality patterns. – Atle Mo of SubtlePatterns.com
