Hampui means 'soul of mine, return to me' in Quechua, the language spoken by Medicine Hat Maker Willee Robert's first hat-making mentor in Bolivia. This lineage helped birth Hampui Medicine Hats and, later, the Water & Bird line. We offer Medicine Hats to our community as tools for healing and self-discovery.
Whether you order from our ready-to-wear collection or design a custom Medicine Hat, each hat is made from high-quality, responsibly-sourced materials. In both our our specially-formulated felts and hand-woven straws, you'll feel a difference in quality that will hold up over time. We also source the world to find vintage, one-of-a-kind bands or partner with weaving communities with a sustainable model.
Bringing sacredness into the objects that we put on our bodies, Medicine Hats are designed and crafted to be worn as an altar on your head. The brim provides protection for your body, mind, and spirit; the crown supports your connection to Source.
Hand Made & Blessed
Medicine Hats are made by hand with love and heritage hat making techniques through our cosmic partnership with Willee Roberts of Hampui Medicine Hats. With a shared home, studio and alter, Water & Bird offers another means of expression and creation for Medicine Hats. We are always grateful to dream up new designs that offer healing for your mind, body and spirit.
