  • Engineer George De Mestral was on a walk with his dog when he examined burrs clinging onto his clothes.
  • What is this i see? looks like burrs have clinged onto my clothes!
  • After spending his fee time investigating, Mestral combined the French words for velvet, velours, and hook, crochet, to name his new invention Velcro
  • It looks like velvet and cockle-burs, therefore, it shall be called Velcro!
  • The hooks would then line up properly with uncut loops on another piece of nylon, and once the hooks caught onto the loops, they would bind the two pieces of fabric together
  • Velcro is great for fastening things a little more permanently, and You can make cable ties with standard Velcro
