    German designer Anke Domaske and her fashions made from milk | euromaxx - YouTube

    Splits her time as a fashion designer and a micro biologist. And so young. Amazing.

    Anke Domaske is a 28 year old biologist and fashion designer who makes clothes from a very unusual fabric, milk yarn. She has come up with an easy and environmentally friendly way to extract fibres from milk and her designs are proving very successful.

    She only uses milk that doesn't meet government standards and would have been thrown out.

    Are the cows treated humanely enough to meet PETA standards?

    Milk cows aren't usually treated inhumanely are they? It's the ones who are getting bonked on the head before they become dinner that are in question all the time.
