Is it cut stone pieces mixed with shaped glazed tiles or zellij? - I love the tile edging and the way it returns to the wall. Blue and green are always good colors.

Thank you for reporting this. Undo

Good question! It's all zellij - even the border tiles. For those who don't know that word, it's the name for traditional Moroccan hand-cut glazed terra-cotta mosaic tile work.
