Background is one of the most significant components of a web design. A great background can affect the whole looks of your webpage. Besides using a solid color, a gradate color, or an image, many times web designers also prefer to use texture or pattern for the web background.
In this posting, I want to share some of the best resources to get a website background textures and patterns for free. Yes, really free! Well, maybe some of them will ask for a donation, but a donation is always not required. You can just donate as you wish to appreciate their works. So, here you go.
L&T, this is how the author called his blog, yeah, it’s a blog that is personally managed by a guy named Caleb Kimbrough. He started the site in order to help designers to get the best free texture. He really provides many great and beautiful textures. He makes a living from creating textures, he has many premium textures which are sold in graphicriver.net, and a lot of his designs have been featured in several magazines including Digital Arts, ImagineFX, and Photoshop User Magazine. So, do not hesitate to take a look on his awesome blog!
Another free high quality resource brought by Atle Mo. As he believes that the internet has always been a great resource for designers and developers, so he created the site as a way of giving back to everyone else who needs some high quality patterns. What I like from this site, along with its simple and clean design it also has a very nice and seamless navigation. You can easily navigate and preview bunch of patterns available and download it easily. Love it!
This site was born with an intention to build a library or home for a lot of patterns collection of the creator. He said that he design patterns just out of fun. I think it’s really more than that. The patterns available are really worth to see and be used.

Apparently, this is a sister site of patternhead.com which I have mentioned above. So, if patternhead.com is more like a blog. John Rawsterne decided to create Pattern8 that make things it simpler for us to search for a pattern. The entire patterns available here are only pixel patterns, however if you are lucky you may find the vector version of it in patternhead.com. I personally believe that this site will grow up as one of the best resources to find pattern.
