Did you know??


In the early 1940’s, Swiss inventor Georges de Mestral went on a walk in the forest with his dog. Upon his return home, he noticed that his dog’s coat and his pants were covered with cockleburs. His inventor’s curiosity led him to study the burrs under a microscope, where he discovered its natural hook-like shape. This was to become the basis for a unique, two-sided fastener – one side with stiff “hooks” like the burrs and the other side with soft “loops” like the fabric of his pants.

The result was VELCRO® brand hook and loop fasteners, named for the French words “velour” and “crochet”
