Macrophotograph of a hooks and loops material, a common fastener in the clothing industry. The picture shows the two parts of the fastener in the separated state. The hooks (top) consist of loops of thick nylon which have been snipped open during manufacture. The loops (bottom) are made from multiple strands of thinner cotton which can pass through the gaps in the hooks & so become attached to them. Magnification: x5 at 35mm size. Ref: MICROCOSMOS, fig.
