Best Straws –
Made by Nature.

The Best Drinks Deserve PAIO.

We love straws – playing with them, using them to stir, for slurping, for something to hold on to. But single-use plastic products are – rightfully – a thing of the past. So do we have to also do without the enjoyment of a straw? No way! We use natural reeds to make straws that preserve nature and our drinking fun in equal measure. Sustainable, natural, and an ornament for any good drink.
Welcome to PAIO.

An All-Around Winner.

PAIO is quite naturally the better drinking straw.

Our straws contain nothing more than Sun, Coastal Winds, and a great idea. Reeds are a sustainable and quick-growing resource that we can harvest each year. Every single PAIO drinking straw is therefore a piece of pure nature that is processed without any adhesives or other additives and that, after use, decomposes naturally. 

But our straws are so much more than just sustainable. PAIO scores more points in every aspect compared to the alternatives. Steel becomes hot or cold – but PAIO doesn’t. Paper gets sticky and softens – but PAIO doesn’t. And straws made from corn starch often have their very own peculiar taste. With PAIO, nothing more stands in the way of enjoyment – and you could almost forget about the straw if it just didn’t look so good.

PAIO Just Always Works.

Whether you’re drinking a lemonade, long drink, cocktail, or smoothie.

Thin, thick, long, or short – reeds grow the way nature intends. We don’t change anything about that at all, which is why we take particular care in the selection. The result is our perfectly processed straws in four different sizes.

No plastic – a true work of art.

The experience of generations is behind PAIO products.

When sailor Matthäus Hiss laid the foundation stone for the company known today as Hiss Reet, this natural resource was still reserved primarily for use in the well-known thatched roofs. Six generations later, the family business has grown into the largest reed merchant in Germany and become an expert in the processing of the natural material. Matthias Hiss’s descendant Tomas used his collective expertise in reeds to establish the PAIO brand. 

Tom Hiss' father, Peter Hiss, was an avid sailor and was already trading in reeds for roofing.

 

Today, reeds represent a cozy atmosphere, a love of the sea, and a natural way of living.

What could be more fitting than complementing this feeling with a cool beverage? This is why PAIO straws are selected by hand and processed using our purely physical hygiene process we developed ourselves. This ensures that the natural characteristics of the plant are retained – without any of its own flavour.
