The Best Free Texture Packs of 2009

There are a few things that a designer can not have enough of in his or her design arsenal, and one of them is textures. So to continue our “Best of 2009″ series, we’ve selected the best free textures from this past year. Since there were so many textures released in 2009 by so many generous people, it is difficult to choose the best. However, we feel the ones here stand out in quality and usefulness, and will be valuable additions to your texture library.

You can also check out the rest of the “Best of 2009″ series at the bottom of this article.

    While I feel like grunge design has overstayed its welcome at this point, I LOVE the vintage ones you have posted. Damask is my favorite pattern!
