DIY sheepskin rugs?

So my GranSport did not include the original floor mats only heavy rubber all-weather mats that have their time and place, but not especially pleasant for general use.

I was thinking about how ultra high-end cars like Bentley's often have sheepskin floor mats, and I thought: can't we pretty easily do that ourselves for cheap?

At home I have many of the IKEA RENS sheepskins, and while they aren't especially fancy or high quality, they do the trick and feel thick and luxurious. They're also roughly the size of each passenger's floorspace, or at least the area that they would realistically be placing their feet.

Obviously the white would get soiled and nasty pretty quick, but black or dark brown ones are also abundant and cheap.

Any thoughts?

I am ordering a custom set from a company in Netherlands, not sheepskin though, for a reasonable price. I will post a pic when I receive them in a month.

The original mats are available through Maserati and are actually fairly affordable.

Not that I know of. Perhaps someone else can verify.

Contact Alex at Daytona Auto in Toronto. They are a high quality shop that works on Italian exotics but they also make custom floor mats for them. Alex has posted here before about them, I believe there are pictures here too, somewhere. Canadian dollar is low now, so it might be a good buy.
