Qmilch is a natural textile created from milk. Searching for an alternative to traditional chemically-treated fabrics, German microbiologist and fashion designer Anke Domaske developed a process that transforms the casein protein from milk into a biocompatible textile.
Qmilch has a texture similar to that of silk, and is quick-drying, anti-allergenic, anti-bacterial, and highly durable. Its non-toxic production process requires much less energy, water, and human labor than the manufacture of other textiles. Moreover, the fibers in Qmilch may be modified to embody different properties and textures in the final product.
