This uniquely upcycled fabric is hand-loomed by a weaving cooperative in West Bengal, India. Waste milk protein is used to produce casein fibers. Through a meticulous process of grinding, dissolving, purifying, and spinning, an exceptionally soft and smooth yarn is created that breathes new life into discarded materials.

  • Material: 100% Milk Yarn
  • Measurements: L 72" x W 26"
  • Handmade with love in India
  • Care: Hand wash cold with mild detergent or dry clean. Warm iron.
  • As with all handcrafted goods, there are slight variations making each piece a work of art and truly one of a kind.
