Open Apparel Registry

The open map of global apparel facilities

We’re busy working on improvements to the OAR. Keep checking back for updates.


What is the OAR?

The Open Apparel Registry (OAR) is a tool to identify every apparel facility worldwide.


Creates one common and standardized resource of facility names and addresses


Eliminates issues with matching across multiple, inconsistent databases


Facilitates in-factory collaboration between organizations


How does the OAR work?

The OAR is designed to be an open, crowdsourced database of apparel facilities around the world. It does this by normalizing information - i.e. facility names and locations - across data sources.
