I am Federica Fontana Terra, 46 years old, married and mother of three girls and a boy. I am an interior designer who first studied interior design in my home country, Uruguay and later at the Inchbald School of Design (London). 


Due to my husband's work I lived in Dubai from 2004 to 2009. There, as a hobby, I started researching about Persian carpets, traveling around the region and becoming more and more fascinated by this marvelous world of mystery, history and legend, design and colour.


Learning about weaving techniques, tribal and nomadic living in Iran, the different tribes and regions from where the best designs and techniques come from, I decided to share this wonderful world and start a Persian carpets business in Montevideo and Jose Ignacio.


In this site, you can get a quick idea of the vast collections of carpets, kilims and deco we have in stock. I hope you can enjoy it and help you get involved and fascinated as I am with the Persian carpets world.
