A seamless brick texture with pilotage  arranged in a basketweave pattern


A seamless brick texture with pilotage arranged in a basketweave pattern. The image represents a physical area of 510 x 510 mm (20.1 x 20.1 inches) in total, with each individual unit measuring approximately 87.5 x 87.5 mm (3.4 x 3.4 inches). The joints are filled with mortar and are 5 mm (0.2 inches) in width.

Pilotage is a unique red/brown brick tone popularized by the ornate maritime Pilotage Building found in cities such as Liverpool, Cardiff, and Antwerp. Typically formed of clay and finished to varying textures and colours, bricks are popular in architecture and construction due to their durability, standard sizing, and thermal properties. Pilotage bricks are often used in coordination with other brick types in external building facades, cladding, walls, landscapes, and interior finishes.

This texture uses a basketweave pattern. The pattern contains groups of tiles which form a square. Each alternating group is rotated at 90 degrees from the last creating the appearance of the tiles passing above and below each other. The pattern takes its name for its resemblance to the strands of a weave which are intertwined in the same way. The number of 'weaves' in the pattern can be adjusted to make the pattern a double basketweave, triple basketweave and so on.

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.
