About Us


Hippy Spirit was created in 2014 by Interior Decorator Susan Tessler.

Being a self-proclaimed accessories junkie, Susan was looking for the perfect street-styled bohemian beanie hat. After not being able to find one that she loved, Susan designed one for herself.  Upon wearing the hat, Susan was stopped everywhere she went by people asking where that unique and amazing hat came from.  People immediately started placing orders with Susan to make one for them, and Hippy Spirit Luxury Headwear was born!

Susan incorporates custom leather patches with inspirational words or images, and has them hand-sewn onto luxury beanie hats. Susan says “I want each and every handmade piece to speak to the customer. I want that person to choose the hat that means something to her. For someone who is having a difficult time, she might choose the Strength or Breathe hat. Maybe she is more spiritual and wants the Hamsa hand hat for protection.  They will be attracted to whatever resonates with them.”

Susan’s goal is to design a unique and personal piece of luxury headwear that is classic, well-made and has an inspirational, bohemian edginess. “One that will not only be your go-to hat when it’s cold out, but one that will also express your individual style for years to come.”
