Best Answer

In the Harry Potter Universe, invisibility cloaks are made from the hair of a demiguise, a magical creature with the ability to turn itself invisible. These cloaks will eventually go opaque over time, which Harry's will not. He posseses a "true" invisibility cloak which originally belonged to Death.

Harry Potter owns a Cloak of Invisibility, which is actually the third and final of the three Deathly Hallows which, according to legend, was first owned by Death. The Cloak of Invisibility was the only known Invisibility Cloak that would not fade with age and provide everlasting protection to the wearer, something no normal Invisibility Cloak could provide.

The Cloak of Invisibility is especially powerful. It is resistant to jinxes, hexes, and other spells which would normally damage or otherwise render a normal invisibility Cloak ineffective. It has also remained completely effective throughout its long existence, many times that of other cloaks, which lose their power over time.

Although powerful, the Cloak of Invisibility is not infallable. While the Cloak itself resists spell damage, it does not shield the wearer from spells used against them personally. For example, Harry was petrified while under the Cloak twice during the 1996-1997 school year. Also, someone wearing the cloak can still be seen by devices such as Alastor Moody's magical eye, or have their presence revealed through the Homenum Revelio spell.

It was probably given to him from his father because in the Deathly Hallows it said that each son gave it to their own son.

The invisibility cloak that Harry had was the original cloak of invisibility belonging to Death originally and it came to Harry or his father by being passed down generation to generation because Harry or the Potters were the generation or descendents of the youngest of the Peverell brothers.

Albus Dumbledore sent it to him anonymously for Christmas in 1991 (Harry's first year at Hogwarts). It previously belonged to James Potter, but Dumbledore borrowed it so he could study it. James was killed before Dumbledore could return it, so he passed it onto his son.

It is a cloak that makes you invisible when you wear it. It's one of the three Deathly Hallows.
