Fabric made from milk

Fabric Made from Milk?

Fabric made from milk?…

Think twice before you throw away your spoiled milk!  Rather than stinking up your trash can, that milk could become a t-shirt!

Milk fabric has been around since the 1930’s but a new chemically free process has been developed by a biochemist / fashion designer, Anke Domaske, to turn these milk fibers into fashion. This German based company, QMilch, has developed a fabric that is completely made from wasted milk. The fabric is soft, sustainable and non-allergenic.

GMO Cotton Uncovered

There’s been a lot of buzz lately about Monsanto and GMO foods, but companies are not only genetically modifying foods. They’re doing it to natural clothing fibers as well, to cotton especially (it is to help reduce the use of pesticides they claim). Cotton, is three times as important to make sure it stays in its natural state because, not only do we wear the fiber, but the seeds are also used as feed for animals, and oils that we use in our kitchens.

Demystifying Dyes – Textile Dyes Used in Clothing

When shopping for organic clothing, it is important to be conscious of the textile dyes that are being used in the fabric, the way that the fabric was processed, and any finishes used on the fabric or garment in the manufacturing process. For example, “green washing” is being done on many levels from companies marketing their products to be made with GOTS (Global Organic Trade Standard) certified organic fibers which they then color using chemical laden dyes to finish the fabrics with! This process negates any organic features about the fabric as it has been saturated in heavy metals, toxic chemicals, etc.
