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. The first original product by BUFF® was a tubular scarf originally designed for wind protection while motorcycling. This neck warmer scarf os made of microfibrous fabric and it is known by its seamless design and its multifunctionality, as it can be reshaped and worn in a selection of different ways. The BUFF® tubular scarf 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. BUFF® tubulars, widely known as Buff are made using special tube shaped loom.[2]

BUFF® creates summer and winter head and neck accessories. Besides the original neck tubulars, BUFF® develops a selection of hats, caps, bandanas, headbands, balaclavas, helmet liners and accessories for men, women, kids and dogs.

BUFF® produces three main accessory collections: BUFF® Sport, BUFF® Lifestyle and BUFF® Professional. BUFF® Sport is focused on running, cycling and sport use. BUFF® Lifestyle is focused on a more casual use. BUFF® Professional products are made for different professions such as security, hospitals, kitchen and more.
