He discovered that they were covered with small hooks that made them cling to his clothing and the dog’s fur. De Mestral recognised the potential and developed a fastening system that he patented in Switzerland in 1951. Today, the hook-and-loop tape stands as one of the 20th century’s most important inventions.
