Inspired by the burdock, Georges de Mestral created the world's first hook and loop fastening system. Although he originally designed it for clothing, it is now used in a wide range of industries, from healthcare to your garden to the military. Although each VELCRO® brand product is designed for a specific task, the basic principle remains the same. For example, the VELCRO® brand products that secure your tablet to the wall are based on the same principles that NASA uses to keep plates from floating in zero gravity.
Today, Velcro Companies remains the largest manufacturer and innovator of hook and loop fasteners. We continue to play with the VELCRO® brand concept to find new and interesting ways to use our products and solutions at home, at work and at play.
