Mattes Sheepskin Girth Sleeves
For more than a century, Mattes® has been synonymous with high quality lambskin products.
As well as being a leading manufacturer of car seat materials for Bentley, Mercedes-Benz and even Boeing, Mattes® develop products for the equestrian industry too.
Mattes® was founded in Germany, and here’s what Mattes® have to say about their origins, “Our company was founded on April 1, 1867, in Tuttlingen on the Danube. At that time, our ancestors focused their business on white tanning, sheepskin and sheep leather, and goat leather. Clothing leather, fur velours and fine hat band leather were just as much a part of it as technical leather, as well as lambskins. B. for weaving mills.
In the second half of the 20th century, our company established itself as a sought-after manufacturer of lambskins for winter boots with a comfortably warm inner lining. Mattes also made a name for itself with painter's rollers and seat covers for cars and planes made of high-quality fur.
We have been concentrating on equestrian sport since the mid-1980s. Since then we have been developing and producing equestrian articles with passion and enthusiasm for innovation. Our products with the eye-catching quilted pattern enjoy an excellent reputation - worldwide. Today our range extends from saddlecloths and saddle cushions to saddle pads and saddle straps for the different riding styles to ear caps and care products.”
The reasons Mattes® use lambskin in their equestrian products are as follows:
* It provides padding to prevent pinching, discomfort and pressure points.
* It offers relief from chafing and doesn’t irritate your horse’s skin.
* When used for girths and saddle pads, lambskin prevents the saddle from slipping, enhancing your horse’s comfort and performance.
* When lambskin inserts are used in tendon or brushing boots, they offer support and impact protection.
