A seamless fabric texture with zebra pattern arranged in a herringbone pattern. The image represents a physical area of 889 x 932 mm (35 x 36.7 inches) in total, with each individual unit measuring approximately 100 x 50 mm. The joints are filled with mortar and are 5 mm (0.2 inches) in width.
A muted, neutral grey, two-tone, medium face weight, thin pile, high density, cut loop, vertical striped, handloom luxe texture for use on carpets and rugs in high traffic areas and on stairs in domestic and commercial settings. This is due to lower pile carpets typically being stronger and harder wearing, easier to clean and less easily marked or dented by furniture or footsteps than high-pile, cut thread carpets as they are shallower and more accessible to clean, with less depth to gather dirt. They are harder wearing due to their tighter construction, which also helps increase resistance to gathering dirt and dust. Loop threaded carpets differ from tuft carpets as the yarns are looped back into the carpet rather than cut then twisted at the ends. Loop threaded carpets typically feel harsher and less cosy, but retain less dirt, hair and dust, making them lower maintenance and more suitable for users and visitors with dust and/or pet allergies. It can also be utilised on bedding and soft furnishing to create a shimmering, zebra stripe effect.
This texture is an example of a herringbone pattern. Named for its resemblance to the skeleton of the herring fish, this pattern is formed with a series of interlocking rectangles positioned perpendicular to each other. Its use in the built environment dates back to at least Roman times and remains popular in contemporary architecture for a range of applications including tiled surfaces and parquet flooring.
This image is seamless, meaning it can be tiled repeatedly for use in architectural drawings and 3D models. It can be used as a SketchUp texture, Revit material or imported into Photoshop for use in 2D illustrations.
