Did you know that Velcro

that handy hook-and-loop fastener we use daily, was inspired by nature? Back in the 1940s, a Swiss engineer named George de Mestral was walking in the Jura mountains with his dog when they both got covered in burdock burrs. Curious, he looked at these tiny hooks under a microscope and realized how well they stuck to fabric and fur. That’s when the idea for Velcro was born! #PatentStory 🌿✂️” Photo by Celine Sayuri Tagami on Unsplash
