The trend of using texture in web design has been around for a while, but in 2008 it was taken to a new level. Not only were there many beautiful sites launched that made use of textures, but there were also lots of useful texture packs created. I’ve taken the time to sort through them and hand pick the ones that I feel stand out in usefulness and beauty.

    great textures..I think they’ll work for design site or an artist’s site but I think for something more corporate it might not be a good fit…

    Most of the links I tried to follow didn’t work. Might be an idea to remove the ones that go to broken links.
    Atleast 6 are no more.
