CocoMats Car Floor Mats was founded in 1996 out of a garage in Agoura Hills, California. The idea began when a DHL package from India was sent to California by mistake. The package was intended to be delivered to a United Kingdom home floor distributor, but ended up on the doorstep of Jeff Allwine who was expecting a sample shirt to arrive. Inside the box was a small sample of woven coconut fibers. A divine mix-up that planted the seed.

Cocomats were very popular in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s, as a factory accessory option by Porsche, Mercedes Benz, BMW and many other European Automobile Manufacturers. They were, and still are, one of the best woven car mat options available that can help any car look great. They are also the only Car Mat option on the market that can hide the dirt on your car’s floor, just like when they were first developed. By the mid 90’s Cocomats were no longer available. So when the co-founder, Jeff Allwine, received the package of Coco fibers by mistake it sparked a recollection of his early 911 Porsche’s and the great look and feel of Cocomats. Having determined that there was a market for a new and improved line of Cocomat Car Mats, and finding no one manufacturing them at the time, CocoMats was started. A few old sets of original Porsche Coco Mats were bought from Gary Emory at Parts Obsolete in Oregon in order to get the weave and colors to match the original cocomats. Contacts were made with a factory in India to purchase the new and improved coco matting material, which factory we still use to this day after 22 years of working together.

Nowaday CocoMats caters to more car makes and JDM icons,  including the four generations of the Mazda Miata MX-5 Roadster.
