Fabric Consumption: 1. Consumption (Kg/ Doz) =
(L+S.L. + Allowance-01) 100 X (½ C + Allowance-02) 100 X GSM 1000 X 2 X 12+Wastage Percentage

L (Length) = HPS (High Point Shoulder) = CBL (Central Back length) = BL (Body Length) S.L = Sleeve Length Allowance-01: This is actually sewing allowance in length wise of a garment. For T-Shirt, Bottom Hem = 2.5-3 Cm Shoulder Join= 1.5 Cm Sleeve Hem = 2.5- 3 Cm Sleeve Join = 1.5 cm Sub Total = 9 cm In Hand = 1 cm Grand Total =10 cm Per Cut and Sewn allowance = 2 cm Note: Pocket, Half moon, double layer bottom hem, and double layer sleeve s/b calculated on lengthwise. 2. Chest Allowance: This is sewing allowance in width wise of garment a. Side Seam = ½ Chest + 3cm b. Tube Seam= ½ Chest + 0 cm c. Per cut and sewn allowance= 2 cm 2. Consumption (Kg/ Doz)= Length in Meter X Width In M X GSM in Kg X 2 X 12 + Wastage Percentage 3. Neck Rib # 1x1/1x1 elastane rib circular Neck Rib Consumption: Height (Length) = Rib height or rib width or rib depth Total Height= Rib Height X 2 + Allowance Width = Neck opening or neck width x 2 + 2 cm (Round)

= Neck opening or neck width x 2 + 5 cm (V-shape) Mathematical Calculation:

A=Body Length= 70 cm B=Sleeve length=25 cm ½ C=1/2Chest =55 cm Picture 01

A= Body length 1=15 cm B=Body Length 2= 15 cm C= Body Length 3=40 cm D= ½ Chest =55 cm A1= Sleeve length1=10 cm B1= Sleeve Length2=5 cm C1=Sleeve length3=10 cm Picture 02

Example:Pls calculate the consumption/doz on the basis of 180 GSM, S/J and neck rib gsm 230 For picture 01:
Consumption (Kg/ Doz) =
(70+25 + 10) 100 X ( 55 + 3) 100 X 180 1000 X 2 X 12 + 5%

= 2.76 kg/ doz

For picture 02:
Consumption (Kg/ Doz For color A) =
(15+10 + 8) 100 X ( 55 + 3) 100 X 180 1000 X 2 X 12 + 5%

=.86 kg/ doz Consumption (Kg/ Doz For color B) =
(15+5 + 4) 100 X ( 55 + 3) 100 X 180 1000 X 2 X 12 + 5% 2

=.63 kg/ doz Consumption (Kg/ Doz For color C) =
(40+10 + 5) 100 X (55 + 3) 100 X 180 1000 X 2 X 12 + 5%

=1.44 kg/ doz Total consumption: 0.86+0.63+1.44 = 2.93 kg/ doz Neck Rib Consumption: Width = Neck width x 2 + 2 cm (Round) = 19X2+2 = 40 cm Total Height= Rib Height X 2 + Allowance= 2X2 +2=6 cm 2. Consumption (Kg/ Doz)= Length in Meter X Width In M X GSM in Kg X 12 + Wastage = .06 X .4X.230X12+18% =.07 kg/ Doz Note: Following point s/b considered during marketing cost: 1. Fleece dia is not available. 2. Y/D stripe wastage is huge. Math:02 1. Question: Fabric Length 100yds width 58 inch (Open) GSM 230, what is fabric weight? Ans: Fabric weight in Kg = Length (Meter) X Width (Meter) X GSM in Kg W (Kg) = l x w x GSM = (100 Yds X36 X 2.54)/100 X (58 X 2.54)/100 X 230/1000 = 91.44 x 1.4732 x .230 = 30.99 kg 2. Question: Fabric weight 50 kg, Fabric width 40 inch (tube) GSM 180. What is fabric length in meter? Ans: Fabric weight in Kg = Length (Meter) X Width (Meter) X GSM in Kg W (Kg) = l x w x GSM 50 = l x (40x 2.54x 2)/ 100 X 180/1000

L

= 136.70 meter = 136.70 x 1.0937 yds [ 1 meter = 1.0937 yds] = 149.50 yds

3. Question: Fabric price 2.25 USD/ yds, Width 45 inch open, GSM 200,

Consumption 3.20 kg / doz, what is the garment fabric cost for per doz garments? Ans: W (kg) = L (M) X w (M) X GSM (kg) = L (M) X (45X2.54)/100 X 200/1000 L (M)= (3.20 X100X 1000) / (45X 2.54 X 200) = 13.99 (M) = 13.99 X 1.0937 yds = 15.30 yds Fabric cost (Per doz gmt)= Length X Unit price/ yds = 15.30 x 2.25 = 34.56 USD / Doz # Piping or Binding or Back Tape: Cons: Length in M x width in M x GSM in Kg x 12 + allowance (18%) Length: Neck width x 2 + 2 (R shape) Width: If width is 1 cm or any unit Pls multiply by 4 Wastage: Distribution: 1. Sewing wastage = 3% 2. Cutting and Finishing=2% 3. Print Wastage=2-3% 4. Emb. Wastage=2-3% 5. Garment Wash wastage=5% above (Depends on wash type) • Garment Normal Wash=2-3% • Garment Enzyme Wash=3-5% • Garment Stone Wash= 5-10% • Garment Pigment dyeing & wash=10-20% Note: Wastage is variable depending on factory to factory.

Trims and Accessories
9

Introduction:
To full fill the design objectives we need different kind of materials. Fabrics are the main material, which used for garment manufacturing. We need other materials also, which make the garments aesthetic, functional and commercially required. Usually other than fabrics these material used for making garments are called trims and accessories.

Trims:
The raw materials used in sewing room other than fabric are called Trims. On the other hand we can say that which materials are directly attached with the fabric to make a garment are called trims. Like: Threads, buttons, lining, Interlining, zippers, labels, care labels, etc. (Interlining is used as shape forming / preserving materials.)

Accessories:
The materials, which are used to make a garment attractive for sale and packing, other than fabrics and trims, are called Accessories.

Sea Freight and Air Freight
Although most orders for garments are placed by buyers on FOB basis, with buyers to pay for freight at the shipping destination, it is still necessary for the shipper or the agent to know how to calculate sea freight and air freight as buyers always need to know how much freight the merchandise cost per dz. If you are required to sell on CIF basis, (with the shipper to prepay for freight at the shipping port) you will need to calculate the freight accurately for your own costing. 1. Sea freight: Sea freight is usually charged based on volume—how much per CBM (cubic meter)—very rarely by weight as “density cargo”. In fact ANERA (Asia North America eastbound rate agreement) has designed the freight tariff more based on the usual value of the type of goods, than the usual weight of them, taking into consideration that for low value merchandise they should give a low freight rate in order to make it possible for the importers to buy goods overseas. However, for high value merchandise, they should charge a high freight rate, as it is believed that the buyer can afford to pay more on freight. The have designed the freight tariff in such a way that everybody can do business and there is sufficient profit for the shipping lines.

Note: FCL: Full container Loading LCL: Loose container Loading If you ship very heavy goods as loose cargo because the size of the shipment is very small, the shipping lines will charge you by weight or by volume whichever is higher. 1 CBM (100 cm X 100 cm X 100 cm) = 1000 Kg 2. Air freight: Unlike sea freight, the airlines have decided to charge for the heavy merchandise (high density goods) by weight, and lightweight merchandise (low density goods) by volume. However, as airplanes can take less weight than ocean liners, the way they Set the standard, in the garment industry, when you ship goods by air, you have a 70% chance to be charged by weight, about 30% chance by volume. The followings are the relationship between weight and volume as set by IATA ( International air transport association). a. From most shipping locations in the Far east to the U.S. destinations and Canada 7000 cubic cm = 1 kilo. b. From certain locations in the Far east to the U.S. destinations and Canada 6000 cubic cm = 1 kilo Therefore when you have low density goods to ship by air, in order to determine if you should try to make the cartons as small as possible to save freight. First you check with the local air forwarding agent by asking him in the country where you are, how many cubic cm is considered 1 kilo in weight. They will tell you either 7000 or 6000. This is the answer you need. Then you physically check the weight and measurements of the good s packed for the air shipment. Now we have the 3 answers as follows, for example: a. The country is Bangladesh and the formula is 6000 cubic cm = 1 kilo b. The measurements of the cartons are 50cmX 60cmX 40cm c. The gross weight of the cartons are 16 kilo per carton. Now let us find out if we should try to make the cartons smaller to save air freight by doing the following calculation, Multiply 5 by 60 by 40 = 120000 cubic cm. 120000 cubic cm divided by 6000= 20 kilo Now you know, by volume the one carton is of 2 kilo, but by actual weight the carton is of only 16 kilo. You also know the airline will charge whichever is higher, in this case, they will charge you
13

for 20 kilo, by volume. If the air freight rate is 2.80 per kilo this carton will cost you 56.00.

$

Now, in order to save some money, let us try to make the carton smaller, usually by cutting the height of the carton. Lets say we have succeeded in cutting down the height by 5 cm, and see how much money we can save. ** Original size of the carton: 50 X 60 X 35 cm (=20 kilo) ** Now cut down to 50 X60 X 35 cm= 105000 cubic cm. 105000 / 6000 = 17.5 kilo Now by using the new carton, we have saved 2.5 kilo and this carton will cost only $ 49.00 (17.5 Kilo X 2.80) Shipping Terms 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
