Anke Domaske says her fabric won’t irritate sensitive skin.
One fashion designer believes she can do your body good by making clothes out of milk.
Anke Domaske, a former microbiology student, created a new type of fabric made up of a milk protein.
"We have developed an all-natural fiber consisting of a very high concentration of casein, with a few other national ingredients--and in only two years," Domaske told Reuters.
Domaske's creative idea has won her the innovation award of Germany's Textile Research Association. The association acknowledged the fact that this is a sustainable fiber that can alter the clothing production industry.
"It feels like silk and it doesn't smell--you can wash it just like anything else," Domaske told Reuters.
The fabric, called Qmilch - which merges quality with the German word for milk, not only feels good but it is actually beneficial to one's health, Domaske said. The protein contains amino acids that are antibacterial and anti-aging Domaske told Reuters. The fabric can also help regulate body temperature and blood circulation.
