200+ Free Black and White Background Patterns
Using seamless background patterns is a great way to give your layout, both web and for print, additional interest and depth. Especially in designing websites, using seamless patterns is the most efficient way to make the background interesting without compromising loading speed of your website. Black and white patterns are among the sought after backgrounds since they are very versatile and uncomplicated. You can combine with any color scheme without problem. Black and white patterns are also not loud and attention grabber, allowing the foreground or the main element of a layout stand out.
