Buff, a brief history of the brand
Having worked in the textile industry for more than 25 years. Juan Rojas decided to launch his own business linked to the textile industry, Buff makes collars and cuffs for European football teams. After experimenting with different materials, Rojas found a microfiber breathable and resistant. In January 1998, Buffera – derivation of spanish word “scarf”- was founded by Julian Peppit with the ultimate goal to distribute the revolutionary and multifunctional Buff throughout Europe.
In the late 90s the textile company based in Igualada (Barcelona) decided to promote their products through sports. In 1998, Buff enrolls the Eco-Challenge raid held in Morocco: “… at the end of the race the majority of the participants were using an original Buff” recalls Peppit. Since then, Buff has become a benchmark for the European textile industry and it is an essential accessory for many athletes around the world. Buff is currently present in different sports sections either nationally and internationally.
