Fashion designer and microbiologist Anke Domaske has created QMilch, a silk-like fabric made from spoiled/sour milk. Unlike other milk fabric before it, QMilch does not use chemicals in its creation process. In addition, QMilch’s production uses much less water (2L for 1kg of fabric) compared to the production of cotton (20,000L for 1 kg).
Anke Domaske believes her vision is one worth pursuing because it is about reducing the amount of waste we create and making non-allergenic clothes.
Her plans are to scale up production of QMilch from 17-tonnes/year to 1,000-tonnes/year.
