Fashion's Newest Invention Turns Milk Into Silk
In a world where "green" fashion is as good as gold, the new Midas touch in the fashion world is green in that it's sustainable and earth-friendly, but it's sour too. Biochemist-turned-fashion-designer — talk about a career move — Anke Domaske has certainly got the Midas touch for the new millennium in that she has literally invented a way to turn sour milk into silk or "white gold." Her invention has sprouted QMilch, a fabric made entirely of milk.
Believe it or not milk has been churned to fabric before but the process always involved harsh chemicals up until Domaske's biochemist brain was able to make it an organic experience. As for the texture, QMilch looks and feels like silk but is washed and dried like cotton — could it get any better? It can. The material is also great for those with allergies (fear not Lactose-interolerant, this fabric won't harm you). The idea was partially spawned by Domaske's cancer-stricken father who suffered skin problems from irritating and non-organic fabrics.

And don't expect her work to stop there; automobile dealers are already inquiring with her about future interior creations for cars from QMilch. From there we should probably expect her to solve world peace.
