German designer makes clothes from milk
Milk isn't just for drinking anymore. A German designer is now making her clothes out of milk.
It's a collection that just might quench a thirst for fashion. The clothes look and feel like silk, but are made out of milk. Milk fabric fills the gap in the textiles market which is struggling with the falling supply and rising costs of raw materials.
"Milk is such a great natural resource, so we have to keep it natural and there must be a way to also produce a natural fabric from it. So that's how we started, basically in the kitchen. And our process is so simple it's almost like baking," Qmilch creator Anke Domaske said.
This milk fabric is non-allergic, so there is interest from hospital and hotel bedding manufacturers. One problem could be the price. The milk fabric costs nearly ten times more to produce than cotton.
