The globalization phenomenon has induced a considerable change in manufacturing and supply chain strategies across apparel and fashion value chain. To get cost benefit, fashion retailers and manufacturers prefer sourcing of garments/fabrics to give the highest level of satisfaction at low production cost. Today’s business strategy is shifting certain operations from apparel value chain to low cost and takes competitive advantage to enhance the profit margin.

Fabric is generally the most significant factor in costing of garment. Fabric accounts for 60 to 70% of the total cost of basic-styled garments. In many cases, evaluating the quality and the quantity of fabric consumed in the garment indicates better than any other factor the cost of producing it.

Therefore, it is essential to the success of the business that this is properly controlled. It is not just a matter of having good markers (although of course this is essential) but also to make sure that fabric is utilized to the maximum.

Merchandiser does the costing which is the heart of production merchandising and the fabric consumption is the responsibility of the merchandiser. Merchandiser quotes the cost of garment at the time of sampling. Hence, merchandiser must know the calculation related to fabric consumption.

There are two methods to calculate the fabric consumption namely

  • Preparation of marker (miniature marker)
  • Mathematical method of fabric consumption
