About the founder

His grandfather founded the workwear company Bucofa in 1956. Rob Kwaspen is now following in his footsteps. But by doing it completely differently. As a twelve-year-old, the now 54-year-old Kwaspen was already involved in textiles. The family business Bucofa, fully named Budelse Confectie Fabriek, was specialised in workwear for industry, the automotive industry, the food sector and the healthcare sector.

Rob himself started working for Van Puijenbroek Textiel, the company that had taken over Bucofa in 1992. He became CEO of the group which now is better known as Havep. In 2018, he left the company after a 25-year employment.

Immediately after his departure, the idea of starting his own business in the industry he was familiar with arose. An own clothing company for workwear. Dutch Legends was founded. The industry and market are familiar territory and with the experts from his network he sets up a platform.

The strength of the Dutch Legends platform lies in the cooperation between designers, pattern-makers and production facilities in Macedonia and Tunisia. There, where Kwaspen has travelled for more than 28 years and built up his network. By connecting the end-users and the factories a new supply chain exists. One that is shorter and therefore disruptive in the market. In this way, both the end customer can benefit from a better price and the employees in the workshop are really better off with a higher remuneration. In addition, Dutch Legends helps the factories themselves to professionalize in projects. Taking steps to grow.

Webshop for professionals that buy online

In addition to the projects, Rob has set up the webshop Here, the self-employed, smaller companies and the care sector, such as home care organisations, practitioners and care institutions can buy their workwear online. The corporate clothing brand Dutch Legends is strategically loaded, so that here too, a sustainable character is created in the workwear market. In the short term, think of Legend Workwear and Legend Care. Expansion to other target groups and applications is planned in the medium term.


Together with the Legends in his network and on his platform, he has a clear mission:

“Everyone in the textile world is talking about sustainable materials and production. We bring the earnings where they belong and limit logistical movements. We are creating a sustainable business chain, but a real one.”
