Hampui Hats

A Medicine Hat begins with a dream, a vision, an intention...

Your Medicine Hat is a tool for transformation, for the healing of your world. A blessing on your head.

Every stitch a prayer.

Sacred Intentions

Bringing sacredness into the objects we put on our bodies, Medicine Hats are designed and crafted to be worn as an alter on your head. The brim provides protection for your body, mind, and spirit, and the crown offers a connection to Source.

Mindful Materials

The wool for Medicine Hat bodies is sheered from sheep in the Argentinian countryside before being pressed into dense felt for a sturdy hat that will hold up over time. Our fur is a blend of rabbit and coypu - a sustainable alternative to its cousin, the beaver. We partner with weavers to craft beautiful, often one-of-a-kind bands, and collect Medicine pieces from around the world and throughout time.

Born in Berkeley 

Harmonizing ceremonial songs and protocols with the art of Medicine Hat making, Hampui's founder Willee dreams hats to serve his community. He can be found making prayers as hats in his workshop in Berkeley, California.

Process of Prayer

It is our daily practice to ensure that each Medicine Hat is made in an energetically aligned way. All of the materials are cleansed with sage, and any excess that can't be reused is burned. We believe that Medicine Hats are tools for personal transformation and that the hat, like the prayer, can touch future generations.

Hampui

Hampui means 'Soul of mine, return to me' in Quechua - the language spoken by Willee's first hat making mentor in Bolivia. We offer Medicine Hats as tools for healing to call back all the pieces of your soul so that you can know your highest self. Each and every day. 

A blessing on your head.
