As more and more companies look towards sustainable alternatives in response to climate change, Qmilk's innovative fiber brings a potentially game-changing invention to the table -- fabric made from milk.

German brand Qmilch Deutschland GmbH created a unique biopolymer fabric made from milk that is no longer suitable for consumption. Made from the milk protein casein, this textile fiber is multi-functional. It is used to create clothing, automobile upholstery, medical tools, and home textiles.

The sustainable and eco-friendly aspect of this product is it's best selling point, as it is made from milk that would otherwise be disposed of. It is also bio-degradable, anti-allergenic, antibacterial and offers UV protection. In addition to it's potential impact on the fashion, medical, and design industries, this material is also soft and comfortable for daily use.
