No way, we love this sh*t.

How are Raws made?

Raws reeds are grown in Sweden, cut to length by hand (well, there’s a machine that’s operated by hand), put inside a 100% recycled box that is printed with non-solvent inks and shipped to stores across the world in as environmentally friendly way as possible. It’s you that really makes this happen though - without customers we’re just a lonely bunch of people with a warehouse full of reeds.
