Free high resolution close up photo of purple tufted fabric. Tufting is a technique generally used in quilting or upholstery where fabric is secured to some sort of backing by either pulling threads through at regular intervals or attaching buttons. This is a buttonless tuft on a knit fabric. The photo is actually a close up of the padded seat or chamois from a pair of bike shorts, and the tufts are small sewn circles laid out in a grid pattern giving the fabric a quilted look and feel. Great background image for a webpage or blog, desktop wallpaper, or texture for Photoshop. Free picture for any use.
