The Pattern Library: a Resource for Free Seamless Patterns
The project by developer Tim Holman and creative director Claudio Guglieri called The Pattern Library is an excellent way to discover beautiful, free seamless patterns for your designs.
The patterns featured on the site are created by various designers, and range from subtle patterns to intricately ornate ones.
The patterns are presented well on their site, giving you a preview of how they look when tiled — handy for quickly getting an idea of how they’d look when used. To see what I mean, here’s how the "Wild Sea" pattern is displayed on The Pattern Library:
Right now, there are 32 seamless patterns on The Pattern Library. The project is still on-going, according to the site, so I would expect more patterns to be added as it matures.
