If waste is a design flaw, milk fabrics are flawless. Made from 100% spoiled milk leftover from German dairy farms, this peasant skirt is at home on the range or in the city. High-waisted fit in full length features gathered flounces for drape and drama. Styled with matching Milkman shirt. Made in NYC.
About Milk Fabric: Developed by German microbiologist and designer Anke Domaske, spoiled milk from dairy farms is fermented and spun into a silky fiber, produced entirely without chemicals and with very little water. The finished fabric retains all of milk's nutrients and natural proteins, making it antimicrobial, hypo-allergenic, temperature regulating and fully biodegradable.
