Hampui wool-felt hats are formed from dense felt body made of a unique combination of two complementary wool types: the first, free-range super soft Patagonian merino, and second, a heirloom Bolivian sheep's wool that is curly, hearty, and structured. Together they create a felt that’s breathable, comfortable, and keeps its shape over the years.
Since its inception, Hampui Hats has been guided by the Quecha principle of Ayni—a relation between beings of sacred reciprocity, where the system is in a balance of give and take. Hampui means "Soul of mine, Return to me" in Quechua—the language spoken by Willee's first hat-making mentor in Bolivia. We believe that hats can be tools for transformation, serving as a vehicle to call back all the pieces of our Being and help heal our Relation to one another.
