How to Wear Buff Headwear

Buff headwear is made in sunny Spain and was created and developed by Juan Rojas who decided that on his many trips on his motorbike on and off road there was a demand for headwear that could be used for all types of conditions. This thought then ultimately became the product, Buff® which derived from the Spanish word ‘bufanda’. They first came onto the scene in 2000 and have grown from strength to strength. The range has expanded over the years and offers a twist on the original buff range with now UV protective, Insect repellent, Wool, Reflective and a whole Kids range.
