Buff (English /ˈbʌf/, Catalan: [ˈbuf], Spanish: [ˈbuf]) is the registered trade mark for the headwear produced by Original Buff S.A., a company from Igualada, near Barcelona in Catalonia, Spain, since they were established in 1992.[1]

Buff was developed by Joan Rojas in 1991. It was originally designed for wind protection while motorcycling. It is a tube of microfibrous fabric that can be reshaped to be worn in different ways. It can be worn as a scarf, bandanna, headband, beanie, face mask, tube top, helmet liner, wristband, or cap. It can also be worn pirate or Sahara style. The Buffs are made on a special loom shaped like a tube. It is designed to make the finished garment seamless.[2]
