Carmaux is a commune in the Tarn department in southern France.

Carmaux was famous for its important coal mining (from thirteenth century to 2000) and its glassworks (from eighteenth century to 1931). "In 1892, Jean Jaurès supported the miners of Carmaux when they went on strike over the dismissal of their leader, Jean Baptiste Calvignac." (from article Jean Jaurès). So Jaurès converted to socialism and became deputy of Carmaux from 1893 to 1898.
