In the textile industry, a bolt (sometimes referred to as a piece or roll) is a fundamental unit of fabric.

A bolt is a continuous, rolled, or folded length of woven, knitted, or manufactured textile material. It is crucial in the textile supply chain, from production to retail.

Textile mills produce fabrics in large quantities, and bolts are the standard format for handling and distributing these materials.

The length of a bolt can vary depending on the fabric type, intended use, and regional practices. Common bolt lengths range from several to tens of meters (yards). Manufacturers may wind the fabric onto cardboard tubes for stability and easier handling during transport and storage.

Understanding bolts is essential for anyone involved in the textile industry, from manufacturers and wholesalers to designers, retailers, and businesses who want to import textiles from India to tier-1 countries.
