Definition: Generally, a texture is the look and feel of a surface or object. A fabric texture or cloth texture is the unique look and feel of a textile fabric as a result of the types of thread yarn, or fibers used to create the fabric and how they are woven and finished. Ex: satin fabrics have a smooth, soft, and shiny fabric texture due to fine, yarns that are woven together in a special way, whereas burlap has a course, dull fabric texture due to thick fibers that are loosely woven together using a plain weave.
Seamless Textures: Free Fabric Textures
Fabric textures are an important part of rendering fabrics in fashion illustrations. Whether rendering flat fashion sketches for fashion CAD presentation, or rendering fashion design drawings, it is important to depict the fabric texture and cloth texture in a garment design as accurately and realistically as possible. Our free fabric textures downloads are seamless textures that can be used to apply textile or surface texture like knit texture, leather texture, denim, textile weave texture, etc. to fashion sketches using the Texturizer in Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. Or they can be used as a helpful reference when trying to depict fabric texture characteristics of textiles by hand.
