Abstract: This paper proposes an improved modelling approach for tessellating regular polygons in such a way that it is environmentally sustainable. In this paper, tessellation of polygons that have been innovated through the formed motifs, is an innovation from the traditional tessellations of objects and animals. The main contribution of this work is the simplification and innovating new patterns from the existing regular polygons, in which only three polygons (triangle, square and hexagon) that can freely be tessellated are used, compared to using irregular polygons or other objects. This is achieved by reducing the size of each polygon to smallest value and tessellating each of the reduced figure to the right or to left to obtain a two different designs of one unit called motif. These motifs are then combined together to form a pattern. In this innovation it is found that the proposed model is superior than tessellating ordinary regular polygon, because more designs are obtained, more colours may be obtained or introduced to give meaningful tiles or patterns. In particular Tessellations can be found in many areas of life. Art, architecture, hobbies, clothing design, including traditional wears and many other areas hold examples of tessellations found in our everyday surroundings.
