Just incase you were wondering how VECRO came about!
"In 1941, a Swiss inventor called George de Mestral noticed
cockleburs were attached to his dog’s fur, whilst out walking.
Intrigued and realising the potential of this concept as a closure, he
spent a decade finding material and developing a machine that would
produce a closure with consistent performance.
from the first syllables of the French words velour (loop) and crochet
(hook), the VELCRO® brand name has, since 1959, been given to an
extensive range of products that have simplified fastening and closure
operations all over the world."
