You may not spend a lot of time pondering the purpose of your car’s floor mats.

At GGBAILEY, we think of nothing else. We know all there is to know about car mats. After all, our parent company Racemark International created the first luxury car mat in 1975.

We’re constantly looking for ways to make our car mats better, safer, and more stylish. Just in case you thought car mats just sit there and look pretty, here are five things your floor mats do for you:

Sit there and look pretty. We were joking earlier, but it’s true. Clean, fitted car mats can really improve the look of your car’s interior. Car mats can be both beautiful and functional. That’s why we make car mats with quality and style in mind -- and why we let you design your own.

Help you keep a clean car. Imagine cleaning the dirt, twigs and dried mud from your car’s interior carpet without being able to simply remove the mat. Yikes. Luckily, car mats let you avoid that particular hassle. Still, car mats occasionally require more than a shake and a pat, but we’ve got you covered.

Protect and enhance the value of your car. Car mats protect your car from wear and stains. Remember: it’s much easier to replace a car mat than to redo the carpeting. By adding luxury, comfort, and protection for your car, made-to-fit mats will actually increase the value of your car.
Zebra Cargo Mat
Protect your cargo areas. Custom-fit cargo mats can make a big difference, especially if you do a lot of hauling or moving. Our woven and tufted carpets work to hide dirt, and they absorb water and snow better than a rubber mat.

Keep you safe. A high-quality custom mat keeps you safe by staying in its place and never slipping. Just to be sure, our mats have three ways of keeping you safe.

MatLoc Clip
  1. A retention system, like our Mat-Loc™ Clips, lock the mat into position.
  2. Anti-slip backing keeps the mat from slipping from foot movement. We use Open Cell Foam™ that keeps the mat in place but also doesn’t poke holes in the car interior.
  3. Custom-fit mats will match the contours of your car -- just like the ones that came with the car. So no bunching or folding will get between you and where you need to go.

Drive in comfort. If the mat is made from quality carpet, you can bet you’ll enjoy the drive a whole lot more. When you design your own mats, you can even add an extra-thick carpeted heel pad to the driver’s mat, which protects the mat and your feet.

Drive in style. The floor is easily the largest and most easily customizable piece of real estate in your car. There’s no better (or more cost-effective) way to add style to your can than with beautiful, high-quality car mats.

Find the car mat that’s right for your car (and you).
