100+ Free Repeating Herringbone Pattern Backgrounds
Herringbone pattern is a distinctive V-shaped or a zigzag weaving pattern usually found in twill fabric. It is also popular as floor pattern both for wood and concrete pavements. Herringbone pattern differs from plain chevron patterns by the break at reversal, which makes it resemble a broken zigzag. The pattern is called herringbone because it resembles the skeleton of a herring fish. In the chevron, the blocks run point to point and the ends are cut at an angle to create a continuous zigzag design. With herringbone, the blocks finish perpendicular to each other, resulting in a broken zigzag.
In web and print design, herringbone patterns are popular as website background or as background for printed materials like invitation cards, brochures, flyers, among other things.
