    An Idea That Stuck: How George de Mestral Invented the Velcro Fastener

    Born in the tiny town of Saint-Saphorin-sur-Morges in 1907, George de Mestral filed his first patent at the age of 12, for a toy airplane. “He was driven to invent,” says Fraser Cameron, president and CEO of the modern-day Velcro Companies. But it wasn’t until his mid-30s that de Mestral hit upon the idea that eventually took over the world — though it would take more than two decades for his invention to finally stick.

    Inspiration Through Nature

    There are many myths and legends out there when it comes to the VELCRO® Brand--- including being invented by aliens (false!) or devised by our friends at NASA (also false!).  While we do have a rich legacy in the world of our space exploration, our actual backstory is much more interesting.
