Dash Hemp Santa Cruz: My Review of Their Hemp Made Clothes That Are Also Fashionable

Hemp At Sunrise

When you mention hemp fabric, most people think of coarse and rough textures like burlap and canvas or even rope. All of these items can be and have been made from Industrial Hemp Fibers, so it is understandable.

For many years it seemed that the softest fabric that could be made from hemp fiber was jeans or canvas, and Let’s face it, theses are not the softest of materials.

What would you say if I told you that you can get hemp clothes that are soft and comfortable? Well brace yourself, it is very true! With the innovation and determination of some clothing manufacturers, we now have softer more luxurious items being made from Industrial Hemp fibers.

I am glad that times are changing, Industrial Hemp might just be the perfect material to make clothes from. It has the best air flow and absorption rate than most other fibers, this is due to hemp’s fiber having a hollow core. Not to mention that it is one of the strongest fibers known to man. It doesn’t wear out over time, it breaks in more instead.

I have discovered this Hemp clothing manufacturing company, called Dash Hemp Santa Cruz, out of Santa Cruz, California. You can buy clothes for men and women on their site, and they have a line of 100% Hemp bed sheets as well.

Dash Hemp Santa Cruz

Dash Hemp Santa Cruz has been making clothes for 21 years now, since 1997, and they have some very nice apparel. The hemp clothing company was founded by Richard Dash in 1997 after he attended a WHEE Festival in Oregon. He decided then, that hemp was the absolute best fiber for clothing.

If you’re looking for a unique fashion with the best quality fabric you can find, then look no further, Dash Hemp Santa Cruz is your clothing shop.

Comfort, value, and style & innovation are the three main goals of Dash Hemp. Creating a line of quality upscale hemp clothing is not easy.

COMFORT- When you first put on Dash Hemp clothes, you know you made the right choice. They are comfortable and do not cause any kind of itchy reactions. When it is warm, they keep you cool feeling and wick away moisture to keep you dry as well. And then, when it is cool, they keep you warm.

VALUE- The clothes last for a very long time, it is not uncommon to hear someone say they have been wearing a Dash Hemp T-shirt or Jeans for years, they just last and last. They don’t pill (get the fuzz balls from the fiber strands coming out of the fabric) and don’t stretch out after years of wearing, or shrink up after washing and drying.

STYLE & INNOVATION- With offering hemp fabrics that are soft and comfortable straight from the manufacturer, that alone shows the innovation this company has to offer. Then to match the comfort with style that can be either casual or semi formal as well, that just makes them top of the line in the Hemp Fabric Manufacturers.

Dash Hemp challenges you to search away for a clothing company that even compares to theirs, how they do what they do and what they do. In their words, “Surf away. You will emphatically not find any other company in America that does what we donothing close in terms of detailing fabrications and our unique looks. Our clothing is transformational.”

Dash Hemp has a wonderful customer service department, very helpful and friendly! They have a 21-day return policy, and 100% refund policy if you are not satisfied with your purchase.

Hemp Made Womens Clothing You Must Have

When you want to look stylish and be comfortable at the same time, Dash Hemp offers just that with their line of hoodies and long sleeve T-shirts.

These two items are a blend of 55% industrial hemp and 45% organic cotton, and they have stylish comfort written all over them! Being built to last, you will be able to enjoy them for years to come as well.

You have different colors to choose from for each style, and they come in sizes X-Small to X-Large. Their prices are very good for quality clothing. The woman’s long sleeve T-shirt is priced at $44, and the hoodies are $89.

When you visit Dash Hemp’s website, you will see there a quite a few items to choose from to expand your wardrobe with.

Dash Hemp’s Line of Mens Clothing

Fashion for men is a little more simple or basic, than for women, I guess you could say. Let’s face it, for the most part guys want easy shopping and more simple styles. Comfort and style are still important, and that is exactly what Richard Dash knows, being a “guy”.

You will find at least one “must have” item for sure in this line of men’s clothing. All the items are durable, comfortable, and attractive. And the prices are great as well!

T-shirts range from $25 for the basic white Rocky’s hemp T-shirt, to $49 for a long sleeved T-shirt (not shown). With two brands of blue jeans to choose from, both priced at $99, and either would look great with the Camp Shirt selling for $79.

Also, great for those with night sweats, as they naturally wick moisture from your skin to help keep you dryer. And being naturally antibacterial and anti fungal, also helps with the night sweats. These sheets will not hold odors, or grow any unwanted molds or mildews.

Hemp Clothes Can Be Made Fashionable and Comfortable

Not all hemp clothes look like burlap or canvas, this we have definitely learned.

Dash Hemp Santa Cruz set out to prove this in 1997, and has taken the lead on hemp manufactured clothing. Don’t take just my word for this, click a link to their site and see what their customers have to say.

You will find a bunch of 5 star ratings, and very happy customers.

I would love to hear what you think about Dash Hemp Santa Cruz’s clothing for men and women. Please feel free to leave a comment below and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

As always, thank you for reading my review.

  1. Enlightening… this is really awesome. The quality of these clothing seem to be  top of the line and indeed fashionable. I like that Dash Hemp Santa Cruz also makes bedding supplies. The prices seem reasonable and their refund and return policies are great. Going green helps to save the environment and I 100% support that. I will go to their website to view more.

    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Brenda,

      Thank you very much for reading my review. 

      Dash Hemp makes some wonderful items, with outstanding quality. I am sure you will find something of your liking on their site. 

      Going green definitely helps! Our children and potential grand children need us all to.

      Thankk you again.

  2. Thanks for your great review about the Dash hemp fabric! It’s highly-informative. It’s great to know that I can get soft and comfortable hemp clothes with the determination and innovation of some manufacturers. I learned a lot about the industrial hemp in your post as touching the quality of the material used for making clothes.

    As it’s known to have the best absorption rate and air flow, it may truly turn out to be the perfect fiber to make clothes from. Kudos for enumerating the qualities of the hemp fiber with relevant images attached! Thanks for the great post!

    1. Israel,

      You’re welcome! Thank you very much for reading my review. 

      I am glad that I could expand your knowledge on industrial hemp uses. There are a lot of them. 

      You should check out the rest of my site, it contains some valuable information, and will have much more.

      Thank you again.

  3. Hemp is the super plant we have hid for so long, many people forgot how valuable it is.

    You have some bed sheet products. I used to sleep on a mattress made of hemp. That was my best mattress ever. I used it over ten years and it never smelled or as you say has absolutely no allergenic characteristics.

    The outside was hemp, the horse hair was replaced by hemp and the center was real rubber, a fantastic product.

    I miss this mattress now, I couldn’t take it with me when I moved to Thailand because it was too heavy

    1. Stefan,

      I agree, hemp got a bad name during the drug wars in the late 1930’s and never got redeemed, until recently. And it is a struggle!

      Sorry to hear you had to give up your favorite bed, our sleep is very important, and a comfy reliable matress is hard to come by for sure. That matress sounded very special too!

      Maybe some hemp sheets would help replicate the old feeling a little. It is always nice to have a simple comfort fulfilled.

      Thank you for reading my review.
