Moroccan Patterns for Web & Graphic Designers

By Sarah

I’ve recreated a few Moroccan tiling patterns. These designs are great for web and graphic designers or for anyone to use as desktop wallpaper. I kept the designs black and white. You can use an image-editing software to customizing the color scheme to suite your taste. They are free for download.


To save an image to your computer, right click on the image and select “save background image” from the menu that pops-up. You don’t have to give me credit, but I’d appreciate a link back if you can swing it.


I hope to update this section with more patterns. If there is a particular pattern or color scheme you’d like to see, leave a comment at the end of the page. Your feedback will inspire me.

Octagon Four Hands Pattern


I’m not sure of the name of the next pattern. It is created using a triangle grid. I call it water. If you know the proper name, please leave me a comment (see bottom of this page for comment form) so I can update. Thanks!

    I am using a mac and when I control-click I should be able to save the images but it won’t let me. Is there a solution for this?
    Thank you for your beautiful website.
    I use many Moroccan designs on my Moroccan husbands’ website.
    If you also like Moroccan music and Moroccan ceramics you might like to visit our site.

    @Khadijah Chadly ,the patterns are not full images but repeated, so if you want the images, you can get them from this link:

    i hope it’s ok to do so, if not, please notice me to delete the images from my online album.
