About us

When the realisation hit home about how much single-use plastic ends up in our oceans, we went looking for an eco-friendly straw for our family's drinks. We tried almost every alternative - from stainless steel to paper - but found none of them quite hit the mark.

Stainless steel straws, for example, are hard to clean as you can't see what's lurking inside them, and after time they leech toxins into your drinks. Paper straws, on the other hand, almost feel like they're disintegrating into your mouth after about five minutes' use!

We wanted to find a straw that ticked all the boxes - one that looked beautiful and unique but was also easy to clean and long-lasting.

And so the idea for HIPSIP was born: hand-blown glass straws with unique gold-plated charms for added, well...charm!

We spent several days picking out the charms and putting them into collections - which means, like choosing a Monopoly counter, friends and family can pick out their favourite and easily identify their drink.

Whether you're buying as a gift or for your own use at home, we really hope you love your HIPSIP collection.

Thank you for supporting our small business. Happy sipping!
