One of the filters that is often overlooked is the Fiber Filter. If you need to create an organic fiber texture, this filter will now render it for you automatically (Filter > Render > Fibers). You can control both the variance and strength of the “weave” as well as randomize the result until you find the perfect texture. Note: this filter uses the foreground and background colors selected in the tool box, so choose your colors before choosing the filter.
