After one year of research, development, and testing, we are finally ready to present our most versatile and comfortable shirt yet: the Limitless Milk Shirt - the world's first and only shirt made from upcycled milk.
Mi Terro is on a global mission. As the weather gets hotter, you need to wear something cooler. Our timeless classics are crafted to ensure you can look your best, do your best and be your best. A highly functional shirt for travel, outdoors, and every day that can be worn more and washed less.
What makes the Limitless Milk Shirt so innovative?
The Limitless Milk Shirt is odor free, anti-bacterial, unbelievably soft, moisture wicking, wrinkle resistant, temperature regulating, and stretches in every direction to move with your body. It is truly the one shirt you can wear day in and day out, no matter the weather, occasion, or location.
Meticulously crafted from the yarn up to combine high performance with shirt comfort, this one-of-the-kind shirt replaces at least four shirts in your bag. The Limitless Milk Shirt is the perfect shirt for work, outdoors, travel and every day.
THREE TIMES SOFTER THAN COTTON
Our breathable milk shirts are three times smoother and softer than cotton while allowing it to be just snug enough to be perfectly form-fitting. We wanted to make sure that you can actually feel that silk texture tucked against your body. Unlike cotton shirts that are thick and bulky, the Limitless Milk Shirts are light and breathable.
We've created a fabric that enhances the capabilities of your skin; keeping you warm when it’s cold and cooling you down when it’s warm. At the same time helping your body control micro bacterial growth and kill the unwanted bacteria. With this line of basics, we've focused on the three most important pieces of shirts that will help stay fresh, clean and odorless.
From the fabrics that we create, down to the stitches and seams, we've focused on the details so you don't have to. We opted for premium threads reserved only for the most luxurious apparel for a completely itch-free experience. These shirts will make you feel like you're wearing nothing.
When we set out to build a shirt as dynamic as your daily life, we knew we had to start with the fabric. We thought shirts deserved an upgrade so we built ours from the ground up, starting with our super soft milk fabric.
According to Ecosalon, milk fibers contain 20 amino acids that are beneficial to health. The amino acids in the protein have actually been found to be anti-bacterial and anti-aging and can help regulate blood circulation and body temperature. Good news for conscious shoppers looking for clothes that do double duty.
Milk feels soft like a feather but lasts longer. It's the Stretch Armstrong of the fabric world. After repeated washes, it remains absorbent, soft and supple compared to normal cotton, and retains its shape for longer!
To make the shirts even more comfortable and breathable, we blended milk with micromodal, another environmental-friendly fiber made from beechwood tree.
This special fiber is constructed into a unique knit fabric to enhance its performance and give you the ultimate range of movement and style. The knit creates a honeycomb structure, which provides a nice texture to the fabric while lifting it off the skin, further enhancing the temperature regulation of the milk. Its construction provides extensive multi-direction stretch to move with your body.
Milk, Micromodal, and Elastane. The perfect blend for a perfect shirt. Made from recycled beechwood, Micromodal produces no harmful byproducts and significantly less waste than other fibers. The manufacture of modal uses 20% less water. and 10% less land is needed to grow micromodal. Milk supplies durability, comfort, softness and moisture management.
Due to its glossy and rich texture, milk fabric has been widely used as an alternative to silk since its invention.
Put on a shirt, help reduce food waste
We think this product is amazing even if it’s just one incredible shirt in your wardrobe. (Or five. Or ten. Don’t let us hold you back.)
The Limitless Milk Shirt isn’t just a shirt, it’s a global mission to reduce dairy waste. Each year, individuals in North America and Europe throw away an average of 250 pounds of food they think is either spoiled or rotten. Much of this food is tossed in the garbage because it’s past the expiration or “sell by” date.
In 2016, 43 million gallons of milk was dumped, according to data obtained from the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and initially reported by the Wall Street Journal. The extraordinary amount of milk waste, the Journal noted, would fill 66 Olympic-sized swimming pools and is the largest toll seen in the past 16 years.
We need to reduce dairy consumption. Join us to transform our dairy waste into comfortable and superior quality products.
Every 5 shirts save a glass of milk from being dumped.

At Mi Terro, sustainability is a core value and something we focus on in every aspect of our work - from production to packaging to end-consumer use.
For packaging we only use reused and sustainable materials. In our choice of clothing, there are two major factors to consider when looking at sustainability.
Firstly, the longevity of the product is essential to the sustainability of the clothing; will it last one year or ten years?
Secondly, we need to consider water consumption due to washing. Is it something you need to wash every day or twice a week? The unique and high-quality fabric is made to last many years and with controlling microbial growth can bring down machine washes by 50 percent. Goodbye to fast fashion and goodbye to planned obsolescence.
Our dream is to develop and create products that are always challenging the technology and at the same time always minimizing the impact our production and products have on the environment.
We've been testing our prototypes rigorously over the last 12 months. From the first prototypes, we’ve been testing for everything from heat-transfer capabilities to odor-fighting powers to hard washing and drying. It wasn’t perfect when we started, but after 12 months of improvement and constant optimization, we can finally present a product worth the future generations.
We have worked intensely with our designers and construction specialist from the US and China, and from there we iterated until it was just right. We used seamless knitting to added vent zones that allow airflow to keep your body cool and comfortable. This is elegant yet highly functional.
This is where YOU come in. We're still a young brand that is completely self-funded, and to bring the Limitless Milk Shirt to market, we need to manufacture them at a moderate scale. Help us fund our first production batch of Limitless Milk Shirt and be the first to try out the next generation of shirts. We depend on you, and we need you to help us build a greener future for apparel.
Fair wage. Mi Terro manufactures products in China’s above fair wage factory. More than 50% of the workers are women. We’re all about partnership and sustainability, no worker exploitation or environmental degradation. Every 100 shirts provide 1 job for the local workers.
Environment-changing. For every item we sell, we will plant 10 trees with Eden Reforestation Projects. We are 100% supporting global reforestation because we all depend on a healthy and green environment to live a good life. So far, we’ve planted over 2700 trees through the partnership.
All international shipments are subject to duties, taxes and clearing fees which you are responsible for paying. Most countries will assess duties/taxes on your package and in certain countries, the carrier will pre-pay the duties and taxes and bill you later.
We have no retail overhead or middlemen, so we can provide premium products at value prices.
Risks and challenges
Mi Terro Global is a professional business. Quality products and happy customers are what we do. We are not perfect but we never stop until we get it right.
This is our second Kickstarter project. We have always delivered and have always been transparent with our backers about our progress and challenges. With our experience, we have together with our production team done our best to create a realistic projection of the time necessary to manufacture and deliver rewards. Complications can arise while manufacturing at such a high standard.
