A seamless wood texture with charred timber boards arranged in a herringbone pattern. The image represents a physical area of 1718 x 1930 mm (67.6 x 76 inches) in total, with each individual board measuring approximately 15.75 x 3.94 mm (0.6 x 0.2 inches). The joints are filled with rough concrete and are 0.2 mm (0 inches) in width.

Charred timber is a general term used to describe any timber product which has undergone a process of controlled deep burning along its surface. Timber has traditionally been charred to create a fine layer of carbon along its surface, which enhances its fire resistance, and improves it durability. In addition, the charred finish has become a desirable product within contemporary architecture and construction, adding a rustic, industrial vibe to cladding, facades, floors, and furniture.

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. It's 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.
