Default Custom floor mat vendor?

One of my favorite upgrades to my e class was custom embroided floor mats. Can't seem to find anything similar for the NA miata. Any suggestions?

but then I'd have to register over there. Hook a brotha up!

<edit> unless you mean the ones that have "roadster" embroided near the seats. I don't like those. I'd prefer a set that looked stock with the "miata" script running from front to back along the door. But I want the script in red or blue or something. Or maybe Miata big and turbo smaller, like how mazda did with some of the special editions.

thank you, Tom. Good link; close to what I'm looking for. I'd be all over them but it looks like custom embroidery is limited to the horizontal direction, not vertical up the side like what I want. If I can't find better, I'll get these.

Thanks

Ended up finding something very close to what I was looking for from a private party in a classifieds ad.

Ignore the mutt--He thinks its his car.

Lloyds mats. One of the nicest out there IMHO.

So how come he didn't climb in the trunk, also?

He likes to sleep in the passenger seat. I actually woke him up taking those pics--see the leer I got in that middle pic? He also likes to sleep on the garage floor next to the miata.

Most of the mats out there have 'limited lifespan', they do take a beating generally.
Some of the normal Miata vendor mats look absolutely crappy when new.
I have the rubber mats. I love them.
