How to Convert Fabric Price per Meter to per Kg?

This is a common fact that we get fabric price from supplier per meter of length and we need to convert the price per kg weight of the fabric. Here I will show you how you can covert fabric price into per Kg, when you receive the price in the meter.

First, convert 1 meter of fabric length in weight (Kg).  Gather the following information to do so. You already have this data.
  1. Fabric width (60 inches)
  2. Fabric weight per square unit (GSM 220)
  3. Fabric length (1 meter)

Convert fabric length (of a certain length) into Kg. 

Use the following formula to know the approximate weight of the fabric roll. Weight of a fabric roll is calculated using this formula
= (Areas of the fabric X weight per square unit)
Fabric Weight (in gram) = Fabric length (in meter) X fabric width (in meter) X Fabric GSM
Convert Width in meters from inch:

Given fabric width is 60inches = 1.524 meter (derived from 60*2.54/100)
Now, use the above formula to find the result

Weight of 1 meter fabric (in gram) = 1 meter(L) X 1.524 meter (W) X 220 (GSM) = 335.28 grams

Convert weight into Kg dividing it by 1000.
Therefore fabric weight will be = 0.33528 Kgs

So, 1 meter of fabric is equivalent to 0.33528 Kg

As per your question, you are paying INR 95 for 0.33528 Kg fabric. Therefore per kg fabric price will be ₹ 283.35 (₹ 95.00 / 0.33528)

I hope this will help you in your work. Thanks for learning with OCS.
