Genuine VELCRO® Hook & Loop Fasteners Explained

VELCRO® brand hook-and-loop fasteners have two essential components, a hook side (the rough side)  and a loop side (the soft fuzzy side), designed to securely attach when pressed together. This ingenious design allows for quick and effortless closure, eliminating the need for specialized tools or equipment. The term “Velcro” itself is a portmanteau of the French words “velour” (velvet) and “crochet” (hook), representing the hook-like nature of this fastening system.

The hook strip, featuring tiny fabric (made from synthetic plastics) or metal hooks, firmly grasps onto the loops in the loop strip, creating a robust and reliable bond. This mechanism makes VELCRO® fasteners versatile and adaptable to diverse applications.
