Game of Rugs

Did you know that the capes used on Games of Thrones are actually Ikea rugs? Yes! You heard right!

In a talk at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles the show’s costume designer, Michele Clapton, revealed the hot tip.
“It’s a bit of a truth. We take anything we can. We cut, shave them, add strong leather straps and then breakdown, which is like a religion on Game of Thrones.
I want the audience to almost smell the costumes.”

Iceland holds many of the locations for season seven. Locations seen in Games of Thrones so far are for example Lake Mývatn and the lava fields of Dimmuborgir.
Fun fact, Norðurflug’s fleet of helicopters has been used for filming for Games of Thrones!
