Thanks for your gift of clothing.
The items that my 19-year-old son hasn't stolen off me I've thoroughly enjoyed
wearing and as you say they are really comfortable. Best of luck.

of the most interesting days in my life was meeting you and learning
about your product "Dash Hemp". What first caught my eye was the warm
and attractively casual look to your clothes. After I learned how they
were made, I had to buy some pieces! I was particularly blown away by
your claim that hemp clothing can go with weeks of wear before washing. I
had to test that out! I took one of your pullover T's and did a sweaty
work out in it regularly for almost 3 weeks before it smelled like one
of my gym shirts after one day!
travel the world quite a bit and wear your shirts when I go. I love
knowing I can get days and days out of them with them always smelling
clean and looking fresh! Thanks for creating such a cool product!

live near the Gulf coast in south Louisiana where the humidity is very
high. My Dash Hemp clothing is a vital part of my wardrobe. In fact, I
love it so much I am working toward a wardrobe that is exclusively from
Dash Hemp. It is so comfortable here all year long, but especially good
in the heat. Whether I’m sailing at Grand Isle or in a meeting, I can
dress it up are keep it casual. When
I travel, my “Dash Gear”, as I call it, is all I want to pack. The
knitted tops, yoga pants, and twill pants I have bought over the years
are still beautiful, and they feel more wonderful the more I wear them.
The high quality of this clothing makes it a great investment. I can’t
wait to add my woven tops as well. Thanks, Richard, for the high
standard of quality you uphold at Dash Hemp!
Sincerely, Gayle Feibel
Again, thank you! I
love the pants, shirt, and robe, and thank you for the extra socks as well.
I am so tickled with all of the products, would you kindly send another pair of the same
pants in a different color and a long sleeve shirt (light color).
Additionally, when they are ready for distribution, would you kindly mail
to me a pair of the new jeans (32/32) that you mentioned on the phone.
It was very nice talking with you today. As I mentioned, I am continuously amazed as to how much I have come to love
DASH hemp products. Not only do they have long-term durability (over 6
years in some cases), I like the gentle feel of the material as air passes
through the carefully woven hemp and cotton fabric. Besides these wonderful
features, my heart is breathing better, knowing that your products are dear
friends to our precious natural environment. DASHhemp represents the very best
of a "green" business. Thank you for awakening me to the
possibilities of hemp and for staying Green!
I am looking forward to the arrival of my newest "threads"!
Thank you, again.

must say that of all the shirts I have ever owned, the Dash Hemp shirts
are over all the best value on the market. sturdy, cool, and really
comfortable. These shirts have it all. I will absolutely purchase more!
first met Richard Dash during during my travels in Mongolia. He was
there to develop suppliers and I, simply traveling. Over the years we
kept in touch (Internet/telephone) and I have made a number of purchases
from his store online.
So, I had not actually seen Richard
except for that one time in Mongolia. Approx. 10 years later during one
my trips my wife and I stopped in his store unannounced. He recognized
me immediately and we ended up making some more purchases from him.
is a consummate professional and has always given us great value and
personal attention. I highly recommend his products and enjoy his
professionalism very much.

I wanted to send an update on my 2008 customer comment. (Has it
really been that long?) I work primarily on a computer in my home office, so I can wear anything
I want to work... and what I have been wearing for the past 3 years is my Felton jeans. I bought 2
pairs of hemp jeans, as you know, so I could wear one while the other was in the
Anyway, I was in a store with my granddaughter the other day looking at
clothes for her, and she pointed out a pair of stonewashed blue jeans -
cotton, of course - and said she thought I would look good in them.
So I tried them on. What a revelation that was! I have not
been in a pair of cotton jeans since well,
2008 I guess, but I had worn them since I was a child, and that was 60
I had never realized before now how incredibly uncomfortable regular jeans
are - they bite at the crotch and they bite at the legs. Of course,
they were new and had not had the sizing washed out - but I bought my
hemp jeans brand new there in your store, and I put them right on, and
they never bit me anywhere; they were incredibly comfortable - like a
pair of expensive slacks - from the first time I wore them. So when I saw the new Boulder Creek Hemp Jeans, I could hardly wait to
order a pair, and now I can hardly wait for them to get here! Dash Hemp has ruined me for cotton blue jeans, you know, probably
for the rest of my life. And I just wanted to say thank you.
- Larry Olstad
I've had a couple of 100% hemp polo shirts and a couple of pairs of 100%
hemp jeans (Felton style) for two years now and wear them all the
time. All very comfortable and it is really true that I don't have to
wash them until after many wearings, so they've been great for
travel clothing and being able to wear them all the time (less time in the
dirty clothes pile). Can't wait for hemp to be common and grown in the
Your hemp sweater, found on
my California trip, won first prize as my discovery of the year. There is no
adequate way to describe hemp's unusual comfort, weight, and "flattering"
drape. I would never have found hemp in our little corner of
Ohio. I am looking forward to enjoying
my newly ordered lounge pants, sweater and socks which just
I would also never have believed
there was a fabric available that can be worn multiple times and still have
people offering hugs! My sweater never did fail the sniff test. I eventually
washed it because of guilt when I found a day I could take it off.
It would be possible to travel (light) for weeks
with two sets of hemp clothing... two sets needed only for a change of
color. Hemp could bankrupt Tide.

Thank you for producing the best clothes I have ever worn. I never thought dressing nice could be so comfortable, better in every way
compared to traditional cotton. I now have a wardrobe that can be worn
year-round. I live in AZ but my whole family lives in PA. For the
first time I no longer have to pack bulky winter clothing when I visit my
family for the holidays. Your clothes are perfect for both cold and hot
Thanks, David Bandish
Your hemp jeans are my absolute favorite jeans.
They are the softest jeans I have ever worn. Even better, they are warm
in winter and cool in summer, which is exactly the opposite of regular
cotton jeans, which a cold in winter and hot in summer! I'm looking
forward to getting the new long fiber jeans. - James Patrick MiculkaHejsan Richard:
powerful beholden to yuz for this Sash Mill
hemp shirt jacket I've recently received. Like all the other hemp items
that I've purchased of yours over the years, this is one beauty full
garment to wear and behold. The weight and drape of this 8 oz all hemp
fabric is indeed most soft and entirely bliss-worthy. How perfectly
wonderful that it happens to fit as if it was custom tailored for me. As
this that weren't enough... how do you account for the fact that
whenever I don it... babes are magnetically drawn to me and move to run
their fingers through my hair? I gather you've managed to divine some
arcane alchemist's knowledge that allows you to instill pheromones into
the hemp. Your brilliance is only succeeded by your humility! Richard,
again, thank you!
I love the pants, shirt, and robe, and thank
you for the extra socks as well. I am so tickled with all of the
products. Would you kindly send another pair of the same pants in a
different color and a long sleeve shirt (light color)? Additionally,
when they are ready for distribution, would you kindly mail to me a pair
of the new jeans (32/32) that you mentioned on the phone.
My sincere appreciation,
would like to take a moment to and tell you my experience with the
products you sell. When I first met you at a home improvement show in
the Sacramento area a few years back and looked at your product I was
impressed with the overall quality
of the product; and the fact that it was made of hemp, a much greener
product than cotton, was an added plus. Then you told me that the
product didn't require as much care as a more typical type of clothing
in that they didn't need to be washed as often to remove obnoxious
odors, namely sweat odor. I took your comments with a serious grain of
salt as I happen to be one of those men that sweat a lot and most of the
Ts that I had at the time usually become washed out long before they
became worn out. Anyway I liked the product and decided to try it so I
The shirt was everything you said it was PLUS!
And, on occasion, I have worn the same shirt, continuously, for as much
as a week and a half (warm weather) and never receive any comments or
odd looks regarding any disagreeable odors nor noticed anyone trying to
edge away from me during a conversation. In addition, I have a fairly
well developed sense of smell and when I would check the shirt in the
morning (after a few days) it always passed the sniff test.
Your shirts are everything you purported them to be, and then some. You maintain excellent quality in
the material you use and considerable detail seems to be spent in the
stitching and such of the garment. In short the total quality of your
product has been, and remains, excellent.
am extremely pleased with this product which I suppose accounts for my
having ordered several more in the past 3 or 4 years plus the 2 new ones
just ordered, which I don't need but like the color.
provide an excellent product Richard and at a very fair price; one
could buy a far lesser product and pay nearly the same price.
Just thought I would let you know.
Dear Mr. Dash,
may not know how much we like your hemp clothing. Well, we do! We went
to Stockton in July to visit our great grandson and family and it was
over 100 degrees. You know what? I was the coolest one in the room
(wearing a 100% hemp hand-loomed top). Ace has found good use for the hemp beanie you gave him.... I'm so glad that I have another new hemp outfit to show off to friends and family.
Yours truly, Zora Copp, Santa Cruz, CaliforniaDear Richard:
you very much for the two tops--the blue scoop neck top (I already own
the beige one and love it!) and the black v-neck top. Both fit very
well, are wonderfully comfortable when riding my horses,
on a hot day, and look equally good with a business suit or dress
pants. And thank you for the socks! I've tried them out with riding
boots and they kept my feet cool and comfortable. You have a customer
for life! -- Dr. Janis Cox Jones
It was GREAT to see you at the SF Green Festival.
The hemp clothing at the other booths couldn't compare to your
well-made, nicely styled clothing line. I LOVE my newest Dash Hemp
purchase: the square neck scoop, long sleeve. Sooo comfy and
beautifully loomed; I've already received many compliments from family
and friends. I told them about your company and where to buy. I still
have my 8-year-old Dash Hemp shirt, my first purchase and my absolute favorite
shirt! So wonderful to see how successful your company has grown
through the years and I'm so proud to support you! Hope to see you at
the Green Festival next year!
All my best,
I recently spent three weeks in Turkey. I had packed my long sleeve 100% hemp shirt
for the trip and I was not disappointed.
There are very few fabrics that feel as good to wear as hemp. It has a
smooth and light feel like the best silk or premium cotton.
In addition to being comfortable, it never loses it shape.
And unlike my cotton shirts, odors don't penetrate the hemp as easily. I
found that everyone in Turkey smokes.
But my hemp shirt never smelled like tobacco, unlike my cotton polos.
other thing I found truly amazing about my long sleeve hemp shirt was
that it kept me cool during the warm Turkish days,
and provided great sun protection as well. But my hemp shirt was
equally as versatile in the cool evenings by providing just enough
Of course at home, I wear my hemp shirts all the time for casual weekend
wear and into the office as well. Based on my travels with the hemp
I am ordering several more shirts for all future trips. And since I
have to keep my wife from "borrowing" my hemp shirt to wear herself, I
am ordering one for her as well!
Kudos on one of the best kept secrets and best products on the market at
any price! Keep up the good work and I look forward to many more years
William C. Burks
so much for the business cards you sent. It will make it very easy for
me to help people contact you for the fabulous clothing you offer. I
live in a coastal area in south Louisiana. The climate is hot and muggy
in the summer with cool to cold temperatures in the winter. I was so
excited to find your line of clothes. They keep me cool in the summer
even here. Then in the winter I just add the hoodie or the shawl to my
outfit for the perfect amount of warmth.
to my surprise there is no need for heavier bulky jackets even though I
normally needed much more in the past.
Practicality and quality are important attributes in any items I
purchase. I have worn my Dash Hemp so much that I can hardly believe it
still looks wonderful.This is one of the best bargains I have ever
found. It travels in a wonderful little compact bundle for a light load
to pack, and is so versatile and durable for work outfits.
the most wonderful thing is how good this clothing feels on my skin.
The comfort of wearing Dash Hemp can be compared to changing from canvas
bedsheets to 600 count finest Egyptian cotton. I can't describe how
wonderful it is to have clothes that feel so good against the skin yet
are so durable too.
I hope you will consider adding a skirt and shorts/split skirts as
well as for those of us in the south who want to wrap ourselves in Dash
hemp from head to toe. Also please consider adding coffee brown as a
color choice.I look forward to what your company is doing in the future.
Thanks for such a wonderful product!
Just wanted to thank you and let you
know I appreciate your product. I bought one of your tops last year to
try and added more this year from the San Francisco festival. It works
great in cold and hot weather. In cold weather under a parka, there is a
tendency to perspire when exercising (skiing and hiking). It is a good
layer for cold weather yet keeps a freshness (ok, no odor) afterwards
so it can be worn again without washing. In Hawaii, it was a "cool"
addition to my wardrobe. Anyway, it's good stuff and one is in my
permanent travel wardrobe so I don't have to look for it.

Hello Richard Dash,
WOW! We would love to tell you how wonderful your clothes are and how
much we wear them. We travel for business and we both have several pieces from
your collection. These items do not wrinkle, they take up very little space, and they look
superb when we are get dressed for our business meetings. Thank you for the men's
crew necks (we have 3 different colors), they work great alone or under a suit jacket.
Thank you for the women's tie tank, they work alone with slacks or shorts, and
they look great under a suit. We are looking forward to new colors in the line
to add to our collection.
Oh , I almost forgot, the jeans are the most comfortable pants to wear on 6 hour
plane trips! Once again, the items are wonderful
and we love them.
Dawn and Terry Bean
I received my first order from you a week or two ago I was, to say the
least, quite surprised at the quality. It was even better than your
glowing description. Pleased, but cautious, I held my breath and ordered
again (I've been down the inconsistent hemp road before, many times).
Again, I was treated to the same courteous service followed by prompt
delivery and a great product.
To say your products are impressive is a gross understatement;
the quality design, construction and first class material would be
any garment - but all this and hemp too? And a business run like a business? Impossible!
Keep it up - it's a pleasure doing business with such a customer oriented company
providing such a classic, elegant, and timely product.
I love the stuff!

Richard Dash sells the best hemp clothing around,
from my experience.
It is stylish in a restrained way, made of the finest materials and
impeccably crafted. I have lots of his clothing and I wear something
from Dash almost every day, it is that comfortable.
I have given many gifts of his line for women to the ladies in my family of all ages to great success.
Hemp clothing has a wonderful drape, a bit like linen but a bit more substantial.
It is perfect for every time of the year because it breathes so naturally.
What I find remarkable is that with each washing it becomes even more elegant
in texture: softer yet retaining its shape. You feel comfortable wearing it because of its smoothness.
Yet it is also perfect for layering.

case you don't recognize the name, I'm the guy who first bought from
you at the Green Festival in SF last year, then was so excited to see
you again at the Boat Show in Oakland a few months back. I was with Sam
on that second visit and I know you have since met Risa.
So how much do I love my Dash Hemp wear? Like you said on selling me
on my first purchase, "This will become your favorite shirt." That was
oh so true.
first long sleeve hemp tee sure was a great way to get started, but
having a few short sleeves now gives me more times I can wear your
stuff. I get very warm in the tropics where I vacation regularly and a
T-shirt is usually more than I would wear there (I usually go more for
tank tops in the heat), but there were great for traveling and I found
the days I wore them for arrival and departure to be very comfortable
even in the heat.
And the polo I got feels so great on me. The fabric has a really
special feel to it light and heavy at the same time. I don't know how
else to explain it. It's got a nice heavy drapy feel, but is
lightweight and not too hot.

I wanted to let you know that it was great to meet you at the
fair on Sunday. As I said when I met you, I was really glad that you
were there, because I love your clothing so much and was hoping to pick
up more. I am psyched about my new t-shirt and Lisa loves her new top
(the baby blue one). And also, thanks for the discount.
As for your clothing products, I just wanted to describe my experience.
Your clothing is very, very comfortable and very strong.
I have worn and washed (religiously in cold water) my first t-shirt at
least 100 times over the last 2 years, and I have seen zero
deterioration in the material. All the clothing is casual, very
comfortable, and great looking! I look forward to buying more clothes
soon and I thank you for your efforts.

the fact that we had given him something that he really enjoys. Wishing
you continued success.

This was my first venture into buying clothing on the Internet

Thank you for your commitment to customer satisfaction. I have
received the shirt. It is my first item of hemp clothing and I love it. I
have since purchased a pair of 100% hemp jeans and am looking forward to their arrival. I truly appreciate your dedication to educating the American public of the higher quality of hemp versus cotton.
own two of your hand-loomed hemp tops, one in black and one in natural.
I wanted to let you know that I love them and wear them all the time.
They look good with skirts, slacks, jeans, anything. In addition, I also
use the long-sleeved crew as a hiking/camping shirt. On my last trip, I
wore it for three days, covered it with sunscreen, bug spray and sweat.
I was disgusting, but the shirt carried itself without any bad smell or
anything! It was great. Thank you!

Dear Dash Hemp Santa Cruz,
The hemp pique shirt you shipped to me last month was far beyond
my expectations... Your claims about hemp features are absolutely
true... It's sooo comfortable, and gets softer and even more comfortable
with each washing. Looking forward to getting more great hemp products
from you in the future!
