In the year 2000 Warner Brothers asked Alfred Brown to weave an all wool black cloth for cloaks in the film, ‘Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone’.
Little did we know that 10 years later on the Hogwarts cloak would have such a spell binding image.
Quality 518/black is an all wool twill at 420 gms and is clearly regarded by Warner Brothers as the fabric for the prestigious, yet demanding job of cloaking the young wizards from Hogwarts.
In the latest film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows youth’s freedom of expression takes its own individual course. Although the Hogwarts cloak is less omnipresent, we are delighted that an Alfred Brown all wool worsted serves to portray such a magical image, and moreover withstands the many amazing adventures of Harry and his friends.
Long live Hogwarts!
