If there is one thing that is ubiquitous among almost all grunge web designs, it’s having a good quality grunge texture or dirty background image. I’ve created the following 40 grunge textures to help you in the search for that perfect texture for your designs. If you’d like to discover more free, high-res textures come visit LostandTaken.com where I give away textures so rad you’ll be tempted to feel your screen.

For your grunge designs, you might also want to check out 50 Most Extreme Free Grunge Fonts.

Below is a preview of 30 out of 40 of the textures. At the bottom of the post you will find links to download the complete texture pack.

    Some very cool textures. I overlayed a few similar textures over at my new site to create a subtle textured effect.

    Textures really add depth to a website in my opinion.

    Hey there, awesome collection, but can’t download it… You seem to be out of bandwidth! Any chance you upload these on a Mediafire or else?
    Let us know! Thanks!

    Probably due to the Digg article this AM…

    Sorry about this. This is the 3rd time it’s ran over the bandwidth limit. I am debating on what to do. They are currently hosted at MediaFire.com, but I am looking for a better solution. Any suggestions?

    Amazon S3 storage is only $0.100 per GB. So $1/TB is pretty cheap– if you put a PayPal button up to donate $1 or even $0.50, people would probably help you out!

    http://aws.amazon.com/s3/#pricing

    Just an idea. I have used it to distribute files to the masses.

    What about hosting them on Drop.io? The only have a 100MB limit per free hosting, but the textures could be broken up into multiple hosted packages. Drop.io is a pretty cool service.

    Nice textures. I am downloading now – but if you have problems like this in future you might want to think about uploading to http://www.ShareCG.com – I have not yet heard of them having any problems with downloads being unavailable, and I have texture freebies available there myself.

    If you’re interested just search for “franontheedge”… in fact I hope to have some more new textures to upload there soon.

    Thanks for the Grunge textures, I love grunge and rust and damaged surfaces. I suspect I’m weird that way.

    Great piece. I love how some of the things we *think* when we see a design are converted into articles on this site. Keep it up! I quite liked the understated earthly tone of this site – http://karlaporter.com/
