Milk is not only to drink, but to wear.
Qmilch® is the world's first milk fibre free from chemicals.
Milk fibre has been experimented since World War I, but Qmilch® is the first man-made milk fibre entirely free from chemicals.
Milk used for Qmilch® is high quality organic milk which however do not meet food hygiene standards, in other words the milk which will be otherwise thrown away.
Qmilch® is made from the casein, protein from milk, using green energy.
６liters of spoiled milk is enough to make enough fabric for one dress. Also, Qmilch® fabric can be washed at home.
Qmilch® is not only free from chemicals. The surface of the fibre is much smoother than cotton and wool, therefore milk fibre is great for those who have sensitive skin.

Conventional fibres mixed with 20% of milk fibre can not only improve the smoothness of the textile but also reduce bacterial growth.
