What is "Hook & Loop" - Definition & Explanation

Fasteners with two layers: a "hook" side, which is a piece of fabric covered with tiny plastic hooks, and a "loop" side, which is covered with even smaller and "hairier" plastic loops.. When the two sides are pressed together, the hooks catch in the loops and hold the pieces together.
