While walking through the woods in 1941, George de Mestral was inspred by the burrs that clung to his pants to create what product?
De Mestral gave the name Velcro, a portmanteau of the French words velours and crochet , to his invention as well as his company, which continues to manufacture and market the fastening system. However, hook and loop's integration into the textile industry took time, partly because of its appearance. Hook and loop in the early 1960s looked like it had been made from left-over bits of cheap fabric, an unappealing aspect for clothiers.
