Joan Rojas is a textile manufacturer who, faced with the crisis in the sector, chose to reinvent his business. He seems to have achieved his objective.
An avid biker from way back, Rojas began riding trail bike in the early 70s. Nowadays, every Sunday he and his friends cover kilometers on those lonesome Catalan highways. It all began back in 1991 when biking around northern Spain. I was wearing some military briefs around my neck to protect me from the wind and the cold and I got the idea to improve them because they were itchy and looked pretty ugly, he remembers. Rojas began working on drawings and carrying out tests in the family's textile factory until he found a way of manufacturing a seamless, tubular headband out of micro-fiber. At first I just gave them to my kids and to my friends, Rojas explained. He also promoted Buff among ski instructors and in shops. In 1992 he launched the first Buff collection. Three years later, he began to market Buff abroad, mainly in France, Switzerland and Germany.
