Iconic French fashion house Dior has launched a set of reusable straws, retailing at £120. The Red Toile de Jouy box of six gold-tone straws are hand-painted and created from glass, which is hand-blown in Italy.
The premium set is introduced at a time when demand for reusable is growing, with bans due to come into place on plastic straws (including in the UK). Reflecting current innovation, there are two different reusable straws among the product finalists of The Excellence in Housewares Awards 2019 – the Hip CleanStraw (made from silicone) from Auteur and the 100% Natural Glass Straws from Huski Home.
However, according The Stylist website, the Dior Red Toile de Jouy straws ‘might be the chicest sustainable product of all time.’
