CARRIZO Handmade Drinking Straws

$15.00 Regular price
Unit price

Sustainably harvested biodegradable straws. With daily use and proper care these straws can last six months or longer.


Materials: Carrizo, a type of river reed found in Oaxaca. Sustainably sourced and biodegradable. 

Dimensions: Long straws are 20 to 22cm long, while the short straws are 14 to 16cm long. 

Clean the pieces with soap and water, then soak for 10 minutes in weak bleach solution (four drops of bleach to one litre of water), or in a bath of white vinegar and water. Rinse them again in cold water. 

To prolong the life of the straws, you can bake them in the oven at a low temperature of roughly 200’C for 20 minutes. This toasts the straws and changes their tone to a beautiful golden brown.

They should be dried thoroughly before using, however if they are left damp for some time, mold may occur. If this happens, the straws can be boiled in a vinegar solution, and then baked as described above.

Oaxaca, Mexico

The CARRIZO Handmade Drinking Straws are handcrafted by a group of artisans in Oaxaca, as part of a socially-focused fair-trade project. These straws are made from the abundant river reed Carrizo. The pieces are gathered, cut and cleaned, before being wrapped in a piece of corn husk and tied with a cotton string. This project pays a fair wage to collaborators and ensures that the production of these straws is done sustainably in local Carrizo fields.
