Why use glass straws?
The age of plastic is gone! Metal just does not feel right and above all it oxidizes your recipes and beverages, and it is not a good alternative for when you want to use a straw. Paper straws get soggy and create more waste. This is why we made these beautiful reusable glass straws.
Glass straws are long enough at 6" for most of your beverages (to sip and to stir) and can be used as pipettes for liquids like oils, flower waters, essential oils and any other liquids.
How do we make them?
Katari glass straws are hand blown by the artisans in Egypt and frosted using a very unique technique of iron filing, instead of sand blasting. It creates a velvety smooth, milky-white finish that does not wash off or rub off. Each piece is expertly crafted out of pure lab-grade glass, which is heat resistant and your straw is dishwasher-safe.

Take a look where and how our glass is handmade
We literally searched high and low and went through a lot of possible options before we started working with this group of artisans. They have never made accessories like this. But now they do and the result - beautiful, hand blown pieces of art that help our planet, help support artisans and their craft, and keep plastic out of landfills.

Practical & Beautiful!
I like using these to get just the right amount of oil out the bottles. Before using these I was trying to pour out just the right amount, but that didn't work so well. These glass straws are beautiful too.
These are the perfect size and very beautiful. Love them!
I love this oil [Granate] and how it helps balance my skin, but also helps my other half with his skin issues. 🙏🙏💗
