What does Game of Thrones have to do with Ikea?

In Game of Thrones, the members of the Night's watch they are seen as a band of misfits who fight with nobility, protect Westeros from white walkers and, apparently, go shopping at large furniture stores. One of the costume designers in the series revealed that Night's Watch members use reworked IKEA carpets while they wait for winter to arrive.

During a talk at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, Michele Clapton, who designed the costumes from seasons 1 to 5 and returned for this season, revealed the secret about the skins that the members of the Night's Watch wear.

"These layers are actually IKEA carpets," he said. "We used everything we could, we cut them, we shaved them, we added some strong leather straps, and we wore them, which is like a religion in Game of Thrones." "Wear", according to BuzzFeed, is made to make the layers look old, for which dye or sandpaper is used. Below you can see the full video.

It is not clear which IKEA carpet they used, but Quartz speculates that it could be the FÅRDRUP, which is around € 9.99, or the SKOLD, in real sheepskin.
In any case, the scene is great. "I want the audience to almost sniff the suits," Clapton said. These days, Jon Snow has improved his wardrobe to reflect his royalty in Winterfell, and it seems that his new clothes are no longer from IKEA.
