75+ Free Tribal Patterns and Backgrounds

Tribal patterns come in bright colors and bold prints, making other patterns look demure. And, yet, they are becoming a commonplace like plaid. These loud bright patterns have overtaken not just the web but also packaging and  fashion as well as interior design. They are everywhere. You see them in clothes in packaging of cosmetics as well as in upholstered furniture.

Ethnic or tribal patterns are very popular. So in this post, I put together a total of 79 patterns. The first group are  editable vector patterns while the second group are Photoshop patterns. The former is more flexible since you still have the capability to change the color as well as the arrangement of the design elements using program like Adobe Illustrator. For the latter, you need to have Adobe Photoshop program to be able to use them. The last set are ready-to-use patterns that you can get from colourlovers. I hope you will find these patterns useful in your designs. Enjoy!
