Who Invented Velcro

invention process

Velcro was invented by a Swiss engineer, Georges de Mestel (1907–1990). When he came back from a hunting trip, he found needleweed sticking to his clothes. After observing with a microscope, he found that the pintail fruit has a hook-like structure that can be adhered to the fabric. So he thought of fixing the wool surface with a hook.

In fact, this structure has already existed in the feathers of birds. The positive feathers of birds are composed of rachis and pinnae. The pinna is composed of many slender barbules. There are rows of barbules densely growing on both sides of the barbs. One side of the barbules has a hook, and the other side has a knot (loop), so that the adjacent barbules are hooked together to form a firm and elastic pinna to fan air and air. protect the body. The barbules separated by external force can be rehooked by pecking and combing of the bird\’s beak. Birds often peck the oil secreted by the tail fat glands and apply it when combing the pinnae to keep the pinnae intact in structure and function.
