The History of Velcro®
The story of the discovery of Velcro® Brand hook and loop fasteners begins with George de Mestral taking a walk through the countryside with his dog. The swiss engineer enjoyed hunting, and one morning in 1941 while returning from the fields with his dog he noticed how difficult it was to detach flowers of the mountain thistle from his trousers and dogs fur. He removed them carefully from his clothing and observed them under a microscope. It was then he discovered why they clung on, the flowers were covered in hundred of tiny but strong hooks which were able to attach themselves to animal fur and fabric.
As an experienced inventor he was able to see the potential of this discovery, and with much time and effort a revolutionary fastening system that never jammed was born called Velcro® Brand Tape.
