Texture is how something feels or is perceived to feel. This has two primary types:
Tactile TextureAn actual three dimensional feel to a surface that can be experienced with touch.
Visual TextureAn illusion of a 3D surface that is in fact flat. Such textures are typically based on a repeated pattern that gives the illusion of peaks and valleys.
