If we were to think of some fabrics that make up an item of clothing then cotton or silk or something along those lines would instantly spring to mind; but milk? Anke Domaske, a German micro-biologist and fashion designer, has come up with the new and revolutionary method of creating the clothes for Domaske’s high-profile range.
The new range, called Qmilch, begins by being drawn from Casein, a protein in milk that is taken directly from dried milk powder. Then she heats it up and spins it into the fabric that is used for the Qmilch range. Indeed, Domaske herself reveals that there are no added chemicals to her range of clothes and that they can all be washed and dried in the usual way without any special treatment or cleaners. However what is unique about this bizarre range other than the fact that it will be the first range of designer clothing made from milk?
Domaske discloses that, not only is her range unique and different, but that it also has some health benefits as well. She claims that the range helps to boost blood circulation however she doesn’t go into any detail as to how this actually works. Furthermore, her clothes do not have a sell by date even though it is made from a milk based extract. That being said it is a bizarre and strange range of clothing although, in an industry that is obsessed with uniqueness and prides itself on being different, one can see how the Domaske range will really take off.
