Geometric tile, looks like knit stitches. This is one of our larger specialty shapes that we call Picket. It can be set in this braid-like pattern (which we love), as well as vertically and horizontally. Where would you install this shape?
An idea to fix a broken tile area. Don't tear out the wall of tile, make light of it! Caulk the broken/missing tile to waterproof, then add an air fern (kitchen backsplash) or a fake plant (shower or tub area).
