At first the two friend’s vision was simple; they wanted to bring a durable and environmentally friendly hemp bag to consumers. The first Dime Bag, the grey pipe pouch, was made from 100% organic hemp and had a plush velvet lining. They realized quickly that the velvet lining was leaving debris behind and thus the 100% cotton lining become a signature component of the line. Although the original Dime Bags were great, they quickly learned that a 100% hemp bag did not quite stand the test of time.
While the two friends were exploring fabrics that were both organic and durable, they had the brilliant idea to blend recycled polyester and hemp and thus, Hempster was born. Blending recycled polyester and hemp revolutionized the line. Not only were the bags far more durable than the traditional 100% hemp bag, but it allowed for the introduction of more colors.
Currently, Dime Bags are made from the HEMPSTER hemp/polyester blend used on the exterior and 100% organic cotton is used for the interior. These innovations make Dime Bags not only some of the most innovative bags on the market but also some of the most environmentally friendly bags around.
