It all began in 1991 on a bike.

Charged with a passion for motorcycles, our founder, Joan Rojas, sought to find a solution to keep his neck and head protected on his cross-country rides. Plucking from his knowledge of tubular knitting, he churned out the first BUFF headwear product, focusing on supreme craftsmanship, and tested it as he traveled the length of the Pyrenees. BUFF , short for bufanda, which means \x93scarf\x94 in Spanish, was born.

Partnering with superior manufacturers of raw materials, over the past 25 years, BUFF has premiered and innovated the tubular headwear category. Our company-owned factory, which is located downstairs of our headquarters in Spain, allows us to ensure that, start to finish, excellence is built into every product.

Today, just as then, BUFF headwear is a product built on this ethos of quality; it\x92s in the marrow of our company.

Technology has progressed and the industry of textiles has moved into a new age, and we have evolved with it. While we incorporate state-of-the-art fabric technologies, like COOLMAX and Polygeine, into our products, we stick to our heritage of quality and reliability. It\x92s these time-tested qualities that athletes and outdoor enthusiasts from an array of sports depend on, and why BUFF is the original multifunctional headwear.

We invite you to become part of the BUFF revolution. See for yourself why BUFF headwear is the perfect accessory for any outdoor activity.
