What is a linear meter?

A running meter, also known as a linear meter, is a unit of measurement that is used to describe the length of a fabric or material. It is often used in the textile industry to measure and sell fabrics, particularly for use in clothing and home furnishings.

The linear meter is used to measure things that come on a roll and have width. It is a meter in length with the width of the fabric roll. Each fabric has its own width, which is indicated in the description of the fabric in our catalog in the parameter "Printing width".
