What is Velcro?
Velcro is a generally used as a fastening, featuring a looped soft side and rough hook side; which when joint together forms a tight bond that can only broken with excessive force.
Fun Facts ! Hook and loop was invented by a man named George de Mestral in the 1940’s while hunting in the Jura mountains in Switzerland. He was a Swiss engineer and realised that the hooks of the cockle-burs (a short day plant) kept sticking to his trousers and his dog’s fur. Through thorough assessment, he observed the hooks engaging with loops in the fabric of his pants; and there you have it, Velcro was created.
