Bricks are one of the most popular products in the architecture and construction sectors, commonly used in building facades, cladding, external and internal walls, and landscaping features. Even drag bricks are distinctive due to their unique scrapings along the brick face, which are applied before the heating process. A wide variety of colours are possible with this texture, depending on the brick’s mineral makeup or post-factory finish. Due to their bespoke manufacturing process, drag bricks are typically combined with other traditional brick types for architectural projects.

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.
