Apparel Merchandising & Marketing for Knitted Fabric Consumption

Knit Fabric Consumption

Knitted fabric consumption is defined as the total amount of fabric which is used to make a complete garment for apparel merchandising and marketing. Knit fabric consumption is expressed as kg per dozen because knit fabric is related to GSM. In bangladesh a lot of order placing from buyer for the garments of knitted fabric. A lot of knit textile mill have been developed in this country. World famous buyer like Tesco, H&M, Zara, Bella, Levise submitting their order to Bangladesh. Banagladesh is the best country for making garments of knitted fabric.

Knitted Fabric Consumption a T-shirt:

Knitted Fabric Consumption of a T-shirt is given below with picture and formula –

Here,

Body length (B.L) =72 cm

Sleeve length (S.L) = 20 cm

½ chest = 61 cm

Knit Fabric Consumption

Allowance = 5 cm

GSM= 160

Wastage = 20%

Then,

Consumption = L X W X GSM

knit fabric consumption

=2.46 + 20% wastage

=2.95 kg per dozen

More Knitted Fabric Consumption

CM (Cost of Manufacturing):More Knitted Fabric Consumption

Description: Men’s basic T-shirt, short sleeve, 100% cotton, GSM-140, single jersey, 1 1 rib neck, solid dyed (red), light, medium and dark colors in different ratio.

Consider  size L for consumption calculation

Fabric consumption per piece (for knitted polo shirt):Fabric consumption per piece

Body, Sleeve & Chest consumption   = 201.09 gm

Neck Rib (approximate) consumption= 10.00 gm

Gross weight per piece = 211.09 gm = 0.211 kg

Consumption per dozen = 2.53 kg

  • Fabric Price per dozen = 2.53$ 6  = $ 15.20                (Fabric price/kg = $ 6 )
  • CM cost per dozen = $   15
  • Accessories cost per dozen           = $   00
  • Dyeing cost per dozen           = $ 10.00
  • Overhead cost per dozen           = $  00
  • Commission           = $  00

Total  FOB                                       = $ 35.35

Total  FOB price per dozen   = $ 35.35

Sea freight per dozen             = $  1.50

Total C&F Price per dozen = $ 36.85

 

Total C&F Price per dozen   = $ 36.85

Insurance cost per dozen       = $ 1.25

Total  CIF price per dozen = $ 38.00

Another Fabric Consumption Both For Knit And Woven

At first we have to identify the fabric length:

Imagine /suppose,

Length = 1251 cm

1251 / 2.54 =492.52 inch’s      [as 1 inch = 2.54 cm]

492.52 / 36 = 13.68 yds           [as 1 yds = 36 inch]

68 / 36 = 0.018 yds

Total = (13 + 0.018) yds

= 13.018 yds

Order qty = 3,500 pcs

Ratio

S          M         L          XL

1          3          2          1          = 7PCS

500      1500    1000    500      = 3,500 PCS

Consumption Rules:

(Length / Ratio *dozen)

= (13.018 / 7 *12)

= 22.32 yds

There we find, 22.32 yds fabric needs to make 12 pcs shirts.

Order qty =3500

Fabric need to do order qty

= (22.32 / 12*3500)

= 6,509 yds

Fabric consumption set with Marking:

To set marking and calculate fabric consumption, have to add 2% with fabric consumption. This 2% is considered as wastage in marking setting to calculate consumption.

From 22.32 yds the consumption we have to take 2%

= 0.446 yds

And with marking consumption will be

= (0.446 + 22.32) yds

= 22.77 yds

Note

Before consumption calculation we have to measure 5 or 6 roll fabric width due to set marker width. From this 6 width lowest one is chosen and give marker 1 inch minus than fabrics width. Suppose – fabrics width – 56 ½  inch then marker width will be – 55 ½ inch. 1 inch is considering as both side edge needle mark.

Merchandiser for Marketing,

A man who collect order from customer sourcing raw materials production on time  & ensure quality called merchandiser.

In this definition about merchandiser we find out following activities of a merchandiser

  • collect order
  • Sourcing materials
  • Production on time
  • Ensure quality

Fabric consumption (Woven)

Consumption = Length / 36* panel width / marker width

Fabric consumption ( knitted fabric )

Consumption = knitted fabric consumption in yards *36*fab.width*GSM / 1550 / 1000.

Conclusion:

Knit fabric consumption width always 2 inches plus from marker width. Always consumption fabric in their middle size. If buying house knitting fabric then wastage will be 10% – 15% & factory 5%. Count of thread if low GSM of this fabric will high.  GSM = Gram per Square Miter
