Background Attachment

Utilities for controlling how a background image behaves when scrolling.

Default class reference

bg-fixedbackground-attachment: fixed;
bg-localbackground-attachment: local;
bg-scrollbackground-attachment: scroll;


Use bg-fixed to fix the background image relative to the viewport.

<div class="bg-fixed ..." style="background-image: url(...)"></div>


Use bg-local to scroll the background image with the container and the viewport.

<div class="bg-local ..." style="background-image: url(...)"></div>


Use bg-scroll to scroll the background image with the viewport, but not with the container.

<div class="bg-scroll ..." style="background-image: url(...)"></div>


To control the background attachment of an element at a specific breakpoint, add a {screen}: prefix to any existing background attachment utility. For example, use md:bg-fixed to apply the bg-fixed utility at only medium screen sizes and above.

<div class="bg-local md:bg-fixed ...">
  <!-- ... -->

By default, only responsive variants are generated for background attachment utilities.

You can control which variants are generated for the background attachment utilities by modifying the backgroundAttachment property in the variants section of your tailwind.config.js file.

For example, this config will also generate hover and focus variants:

  // tailwind.config.js
  module.exports = {
    variants: {
      extend: {
        // ...
+       backgroundAttachment: ['hover', 'focus'],


If you don't plan to use the background attachment utilities in your project, you can disable them entirely by setting the backgroundAttachment property to false in the corePlugins section of your config file:

  // tailwind.config.js
  module.exports = {
    corePlugins: {
      // ...
+     backgroundAttachment: false,
