Patternbank is the world’s leading online design studio with the largest collection of textiles designers all under one roof. With our new site upgrade we are reacting, innovating and evolving to the ever changing design industry. We are looking to the future. Patternbank is changing the way the design industry shops for textiles designs and surface patterns.


Check out all the new features that we’ve rolled out today…


We’ve created an all new design preview engine that automatically puts designs in repeat.


We have introduced a larger selection of new products that you can visualise the patterns on. Our new templates include: a new dress, leggings, wallpaper, a trainer, kids t-shirt, backpack, book, iPhone cover & a men’s shirt. These new product templates enable you to see the design realistically on certain products helping you get a true feel for how the design will look. Our designers are able to choose 5 masks from a selection of 12 brand new ones so they are able to show off their design like never before.


You can now position and scale the designs giving you the ability to view a design in large scale or small ditsy. We also have a unique zoom feature that enables buyers to see designs up close to view the detail of the design.


Our designers are now able to upload optional design files including colourways, Pantone colours, original drawing, photographs – anything goes. Again, giving you more value from your purchases.


We have added new license features so you to get more from the Patternbank design collection. Our ‘Stock Non-Exclusive License’ has been renamed ‘Standard Non-Exclusive License’, our ‘Premium Exclusive License’ remains unchanged. Newly uploaded Standard License designs can now be purchased with a layered PSD (for bitmap designs) or vector AI/EPS (for vector designs) via Extended License Options. Allowing buyers to use the design for commercial product for resale. Our basic Standard license allows noncommercial use of designs. We’ve also improved our licensing page so if you have any queries please take a look here. If you have any feedback or questions please email
