Seamless patterns are a great way to add interest and detail to a web design background. In this post we’ve rounded up over one hundred seamless patterns. You’ll find a wide variety of styles such as vintage, florals, and stripes. All of these are of very high quality so you can use them as is or use them as a foundation for your own background.

Nice collection,but i think you can give me some more beauty patterns.
That’s an interesting post with very creative backgrounds. Thank you so much for sharing !
Really useful, thank you!
Great collection. I especially like the BirdsNBerries and the stripes.
These are wonderful! If I were to see a 500+ Pack of the same quality, I would sign up for a pro account for those, alone!
This collection is a great source of inspiration. Keep up the great work!
Nice collection. Thanks for sharing!
As always, a very nice collection! For me, subtle backgrounds are the way to go. Throw in a little texture but nothing too crazy.
Agreed. Great post and very useful. Thank you so much. If you share more please @brianjking me. Cheers.
a lot of them look like my grandmother wallpaper lol. great post.
Haha – I have wallpaper similar in the house I rent. I love it though.
My grandma did too! This is a nice collection.
I’ve been sort of enamored with light effects and textured backgrounds so this is a great addition to my collection.
I’d like to also throw in the infamous SquidFingers patterns: http://www.squidfingers.com/patterns/
They’re SMALLER, but seamless, and I’ve loved them for years!
Also a great resource – really love the bottom right hand corner on the 1st page.
Absolutely awesome collection!!!
Thanks for sharing!!!
Nice collection of patterns, these would actually be nice for actual products too.
Wow, really beautiful collection. I was thinking of making a custom template for Blogger but just was unable to get some cool (actually cute) patterns. I think, I’ve just found them!
Beautiful collection, thanks for compiling them. I love the vintage ones.
Sorry for the NEWBIE question…I love these wallpapers, but how do I use them ‘seamlessly’.
They’re quite large, do I have to crop them? But I have to crop them in such a way that they’ll be seamless when repeating it across the page right?
Thanks for any advice,
P.S. I know how to repeat images across x & y axis via CSS…it’s just the part in Photoshop that’s got me stumped. 🙂
Not a newbie question at all. You really have two options:
You can size the image down, but of course this will make your pattern smaller. This may be something that you will have to play with to see if the patterns still look suitable for you at smaller sizes.
Then as you mentioned, you could re-crop a smaller section out of the pattern, but you have to make sure it is still seamless. This also will require a little trial and error. Using guides in Photoshop should help you get the edges correct.
Hope that helps.
Thanks alot for these great patterns
Very nice !
What about a little application or Illustrator / Photoshop plugin that could help creating pattern with an automatic live tiling preview on the screen ?
Thanks for these great patterns. My personal favourite is the swirls, but they are all great 🙂
Thank you so much for this brilliant collection!
Nice collection of quality patterns. Thanks for sharing!!
Thanks for sharing. A time saver for me.
Very nice collection. Good inspiration for people who work with pattern.
Thanks a lot
Indeed these are some great patterns and techniques for creating patterns.
Hopefully they don’t get overused and integrate with in the design well…
Thanks and Regards

Really nice collection.
I’ve seen a few of the patterns before but some of the others will likely work well into an upcoming project.
These are beautiful. I’ve had a heck of a time finding seamless patterns that I like. Thank you for putting this collection together.
Gives me a lot of choices, great resource … I’ll wear it on our next design project
great collections, thanks for sharing.
I definitely need some background improvement on my site, but I’m looking for something a little more simple. Perhaps a minimal color texture? In either case, these are some great examples and certainly in style.
Thanks for these fantastic patterns 🙂

As I recently wrote on mysitemyway.com (back then regarding your icons sets) you are one the best resources for the not-so-wealthy freelancer on the internet I know of. Everything that comes from your site itself (e.g. glossy orbs icons, fire red grunge patterns,…) is of very good quality and I thank you – big time – for your generosity.
Very nice collection thanks for sharing 🙂
