Motivated by the low structural fidelity for near-regular textures in current texture synthesis algorithms, we propose and implement an alternative texture synthesis method for near-regular texture. We view such textures as statistical departures from regular patterns and believe that a thorough understanding of their structures in terms of their translation, rotation and reflection symmetries can enhance existing methods of texture synthesis. We demonstrate the perils of texture synthesis for near-regular texture and the promise of faithfully preserving the regularity as well as the randomness presented in a near-regular texture sample.
