Hook and Loop History
Hook and loop is the generic term for a style of fastener which uses two strips of material,
one with hooks and one with loops. This concept is an old one as anyone who has walked through a field of weeds and had them stick to their clothes is well aware. One such man was George de Mestral the inventor of VelcroŽ. Velour Crochet or VelcroŽ as it came to be known was first invented by De Mestral in 1948 but was then developed into the hook and loop system that we know today by a weaving company in France in 1951.

Hook and loop systems (originally just VelcroŽ) made their entry into the mainstream market as companies and manufacturers attempted to meet the needs of young children. The hook and loop system was a perfect alternative to the conventional fastening methods such as shoelaces and buttons. It is strong, easily separated, lightweight, durable, and washable, comes in a variety of colours, and won't jam.
Hook and loop has expanded into many more areas of the market place.
