About Open Apparel Registry
The Open Apparel Registry (OAR) is an open source tool which maps garment facilities worldwide and assigns a unique ID number to each. It is a go-to source for identifying apparel facilities and their affiliations by collating disparate supplier lists from industry stakeholders into one central, open source map and database. The collated database of facility names, addresses and affiliated parties is powered by an advanced name and address-matching algorithm and is available for use by any organization, for free.
