"I first entered the world of Ralo, Tibet Carpet, three years ago and met Tenzin and his guys. Bought a large carpet that day…and have returned several times since that initial addictive event. All told I'm up to 11 stocked carpets, plus one custom carpet. Not only is it a pleasure to buy/talk to Tenzin - but now I have 12 gorgeous carpets (plus one pillow). Like Arnold has said - I'll be back…"
Bob Reeves, New York City
"I have worked with Tenzin at Ralo, Tibet Carpet, for a number of years and every time I have gotten wonderful and unique rugs that either create the foundation for a room or enhance whatever ongoing project I am working on. The Ralo experience is a wonder for all the senses; starting with a visit to the beautiful and serene showroom on Howard Street, one immediately is transported to another world from bustling Soho outside. The superb quality and care of each rug is apparent while looking thru the samples. There is some deception too because at first one feels there aren’t many rugs to choose from, but indeed there are and there is something for every taste. It is a carefully edited selection and therefore doesn’t overwhelm people. My clients always smile when they refer to our shopping expedition at Ralo. Of course I love when a rug is perfect for a particular home but it is equally important for me to enjoy the design process and this company provides it all."

"...Sogyel was wonderful to work with. We are enjoying the Driftwood carpet in our house and are giving the Blocks Spice carpet to my son for a wedding present. Thank you so much for the service you have provided to us."
Rhonda, Covington, Louisiana
"I am very much enjoying the natural brown rug in my house. We have a brownstone with all the original details dating back to the 1890's and I was a little concerned when purchasing the rug since I had only purchased the same rug for mostly new and very minimal spaces, but it is working out beautifully. I was also fearful of the rug shedding, but the natural oils in the rug keeps it looking new and we didn't have trouble with much shedding."
Myonggi Sul, Interior Design Professor at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, New York
