As firefighters in North Carolina have been hard at work extinguishing the wildfires that have spread throughout the Western part of the state, Carolina Creative Products has come to their aid the best way they know how — sending the first responders 100 “Stars & Stripes” bandannas that were proudly made in the USA.


The bandanna manufacturer, located in Greenville, South Carolina, has been in business since 1946 and is a division of Springs Creative that supplies bandannas to retailers and are also the only American manufacturer of premium, traditional, 100 percent cotton bandannas, as well as novelty bandannas.
