  2. How Car Mats are Made

    Ever wondered how Car Mats are made? Or how you can personalise Car Mats?

    Watch our short video to see how Car Mats are made from a roll of Automotive Carpet

    Manufacturing Process – How Car Mats are Made

    Cutting Machine
    Using the latest CAD technology and digital templates, the outline of the car mat is individually cut out of automotive carpet or rubber. The carpet is available in standard, luxury and exclusive which determines the thickness of the car mat. Each car mat comes with an anti-slip backing.

    Sewing of the Trims
    Once the car mat shape has been cut, a skilled machinist adds the edging which is available in a variety of different colours and styles.

    Sewing the Heelpad
    A heelpad protector is then sewn onto the car mat by another one of our talented machinists. The heelpad is either made out of Automotive Carpet or PVC.

    Embroidery Machine
    Many of our customers want to make their car mats personalised by having up to 20 characters of text embroidered onto the front two car mats. An embroidery machine is used to produce stylish text which can be added in a range of fonts. The embroidery is then stitched into place by a member of the team.

    Adding the Clips
    The final stage is to add the fixings to each car mat, these are all done by hand. This ensures that your car mats can be fixed into placed. A final quality check is carried out and the floor mats are then brushed, packaged and dispatched.

    Luxury Pet Travel Accessory for your Dog!

    The Car Dog Sling is designed to protect both your car and your Dog. Strong waterproof material is used on the underside to protect your car from a wet dog after a rainy walk.

    Car Dog Sling – Pet Travel and Car Protection

    Dog safety is also important when choosing which pet travel accessory to buy. The Car Dog Sling allows your pet to travel comfortably and prevents them from falling into the backseat footwells or through to the front of the car.

    If your pet is in the backseat without projection they can climb into the front of the car distracting the driver and possibly causing an accident, the Car Dog Sling stops this from happening.

    Available in a wide range of colours, two different materials and a choice of cloth bound edgings. Your pet can travel in style!

    Evie the Gold Cocker Spaniel is modelling our Car Dog Sling above. The paw print fleece material is one of our most popular designs.

    Although we have designed the Car Dog Sling for pet owners we also think it would be useful for Fisherman, Tradesman and the general public who need to transport items that do not fit in their boot.

    We DO NOT recommend transporting children in this way, they must always wear a seatbelt! If you would like to protect your car against sticky fingers and spills our seat covers will be ideal. These are currently being added to our website, in the mean time call 01623 645100 to order a set.
