Explore About Velcro & Its Products
Velcro is a brand of hook-and-loop fasteners, which is a type of fastening system that consists of two components: typically, two lineal fabric strips which are attached to the opposing surfaces to be fastened. One component features tiny hooks and the other features small loops. When the two components are pressed together, the hooks catch in the loops and hold the surfaces together.
Velcro was invented in 1941 by Swiss engineer George de Mestral.
The word velcro is a combination of velvet and crochet, describing the way the system works.
Velcro was first used by NASA in 1969 on the Apollo space mission suits.
