Wearing milk


A German scientist and fashion designer has patented a process for making clothes from cow’s milk despite much skepticism from experts.

Anke Domaske has discovered a way to create clothes using “milk threads” through a machine that transforms the dairy product into a silky cotton. She is planning on producing garments with that method on an industrial scale.
