If you have an iPhone you are most likely familiar with the Apple Linen Texture. This texture is used as the background of any folder that you create for your apps. It’s dark enough to let your apps ‘pop’, but the nice texture is more interesting than a flat black color would have been.
Multiple designers around the web have picked up on this background, and have used it in their website designs. Here are a few examples:
Livefyre uses the Apple linen texture for their header background.
The Apple linen texture also makes an appearance, this time in orange, on the blog.path.com website.
Themify.me uses the Apple Linen texture as the background of their ‘theme switcher’ bar.
Dev7studios (the creators of the Nivo Slider), use the Apple linen texture as the background of their footer.
Robin Quivers (from the Howard Stern show) has the Apple linen texture as the backdrop of her header.
