Carole Fabrics

Carole Fabrics, a manufacturer of custom window treatments, has been a part of the Augusta community for 60 years. Over the past couple of months, as demand for their core products began to decline precipitously, Frank's team at Carole pivoted their production focus from draperies and shades to reusable face masks to help stem the spread of Covid-19 in our area. What started out as a small side project to provide masks to first responders, has now grown to include businesses, individuals, law enforcement and others in need around the CSRA and beyond. To date, Carole has made nearly 15,000 masks, with output growing daily.
