Did You Know?
Velcro was first invented in 1941 by Swiss engineer George de Mestral. He got the idea after noticing how burrs stuck to his dog’s fur during a walk in the woods. He examined the burrs under a microscope and saw that they had tiny hooks that could latch onto the loops in fabric or fur. This observation led him to develop the hook-and-loop fastening system, which he patented in 1955.
