Did You Know? Game of Thrones Merchandise Is Manufactured in India

Much of the mighty Valyrian sword come from India. YES, India! And Jon Snow’s fur-lined cape? That too!

We are the only manufacturer of licensed garments for Game of Thrones in India. Harry Potter and the Star Wars costumes did well, but the Game of Thrones costumes have been among the most popular.

Windlass Steelcrafts which was established in the 1940s specialises in manufacturing swords and sabres and other weaponry.
