Wood textures convey an organic feeling and are one of the most widely used textures in app interfaces and web design. Whether you use them as backgrounds, combine them with other design and UI elements, or use them with other textures, these wooden elements will help you create an immersive experience and define the personality of your website, app or graphic design work.
