Where is ToMA Glass Straws located?
We're based in Portland, Oregon. André Jehan (our visionary co-founder) grew up in southeast Portland. Tom Frost was born and raised in Hillsboro. Maya Frost (happily married to Tom for almost 35 years) is from the tiny town of Gaston. The three of us have been friends for over 25 years, and raised our children (six millennial daughters!) in the Portland area.
We love Oregon, and love supporting and promoting Oregon businesses. You'll see stunning photos by Oregon wedding and nature photographers plus plenty of glass straw inspiration on our Instagram account.
