Qmilk – the bio Milk Fibre

The Qmilch GmbH has developed an innovative process to produce a textile fiber from milk which cannot be used for consumption.

Qmilk fiber is made from 100% renewable resources. Because of our eco-efficient production technology and our special recipe, we set new standards in fiber production.

  • For the production of 1 kg of fiber we need only 5 minutes and max. 2 liters of water. This implies a particular level of cost efficiency and ensures a minimum of CO2 emissions.
  • Qmilk fiber is biodegradable and leaves no traces.
  • It is naturally antibacterial and ideal for people that suffer from textile allergies.
  • Fabrics made from Qmilk fiber provide high wearing comfort and a silky feel.
  • The organic fiber is tested for harmful substances and dermatologically tested for your skin and body compatibility.
  • 0% chemical additives.

The casein, which is the main resource of our products, is made from raw milk, that is no longer tradable and regarding legislation can not be used as food. In Germany every year 1.9 million tons of milk must be disposed of. This milk still contains valuable ingredients and offers great potential for technical purposes. We use a raw material which is inevitably accrued and thus only extend its product life cycle. Additionally, we pay attention to sustainable animal husbandry of our suppliers.

Fields of application

Clothing

Fashion made ​​from milk – sounds crazy, but we made it possible. However, the newly developed Qmilk fiber does not only convince by offering a clear environmental advantage, but also outstanding functional properties for all clothing ranges:
An admixture of only 20% of Qmilk fiber is sufficient to improve the quality of yarns and fabrics made ​​from conventional fibers significantly. Fabrics made ​​of Qmilk fiber are very soft and provide a comfortable fit. Due to the excellent heat and moisture management fabrics of Qmilk allow to be used in workwear ranges and ready-to-wear clothing. The reduced bacterial growth by the fiber and the best skin-sensory properties provide you the opportunity to offer your customers clothing for every activity and any weather.
