Natural Auto Products (NAP) makes a line of planet friendly car mats from coco fiber, sisal, sea grass and wool. These mats represent the exotic side of the NAP product line. The company also makes car mats out of modern day synthetic materials that don't qualify for the exotic classification but are still unusual in their design. Anyway here's a little info on each of the exotic car mats from Natural Auto Products.
Popular in 1950's through 1970's European cars from such manufacturers as Mercedes Benz, BMW, MG, Triumph, VW and Porsche, the CocoMat from NAP is really made from woven fibers sourced in India. There, coconut husks are beaten into fibers, aged in water, spun into yarn, dyed to the desired colors and woven into the fabric that finds its' way to NAP here in the USA.
Natural Auto Products(NAP) manufactures its' Sisal Mat from, of all things, sisal. Sisal is a natural, fibrous, stringy type material derived from the agave sisalana cactus. NAP sources its' sisal in Tanzania and ships it to India where it is spun into a boucle style yarn. This yarn is then spun into a boucle type fabric that has a softer, looped appearance. It adds a bit of refinement to your vehicle and is even used in upscale residential applications. The sisal fabric is processed by NAP in a manner similar to the coco fiber product.
Sea Grass Mats
NAP uses grass grown in the ocean depths to make their Sea Grass Car Mat. They say it gives a beach look to your car and gives a unique look, feel and smell to your car interior. These mats evolve in color from light green to a golden tan over time. Processing the fabric to make the sea grass mat is similar to the coco fiber product with most features being the same. But since the sea grass is grown in offshore farms and harbors hundreds of species of fish and ocean life as a result, you may feel more environmentally and fish conscious buying this mat.
Luxurious, woven woolen mats from Natural Auto Products. Soft to the touch and available in 6 colors; black, gray, golden tan, taupe, brown fawn and dark gray. NAP says these mats will make your bare feet say "Thank You". Manufacturing and features are similar to the Natural Auto Products CocoMat.
