|"Is this all real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"
The subject of this article is a real-life person, company, product, or creative work that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source. The Harry Potter Wiki is written from the perspective that all information presented in canon is true (e.g., Hogwarts really exists), and, as such, details contained in this article may differ from real world facts.
Eckō is a Muggle clothing company based in East Brunswick, New Jersey. Malcolm, a member of Dudley Dursley's gang, owned a pair of blue shorts made by this company, which he was wearing when Dementors attacked Dudley and his cousin, Harry Potter, on 2 August, 1995.
Behind the scenes
- Eckō is a real company. It was founded in 1996, which makes the appearance of one of its products in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix inconsistent with the canonical timeline, as in the novel the Dementor attack occurred in 1995.
