We point out that the Kalb-Ramond field of string theory can induce electroweak dipole dark matter, although the dark matter constituents of the dipoles do not carry weak charges. We also show that the model is compatible with direct search constraints from electron recoils. However, the recoil cross sections are above the neutrino floor and should be testable in future experiments.
