Enter the total yards of leather fabric required into the calculator to determine the total leather square footage.

## Leather Square Footage Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a leather square footage.

LSF = Y * 18

• Where LSF is the leather square footage (ft^2)
• Y is the total amount of yards used (yds)

To calculate the total amount of square footage of leather needed for a project, multiply the fabric yards by 18.

## What is leather square footage?

Definition:

Leather square footage is the total area of leather needed for a project. It can be calculated by multiplying the length and width of the piece of fabric or through multiply the fabric yards by 18.

## How to calculate leather square feet?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines how to calculate the square footage of leather needed for a project.

First, determine the total yards to be used. In this example, the total fabric yards needed is 5.

Next, the final and last step is to use the formula above to calculate the leather square feet.

LSF = Y * 18

LSF = 5 * 18

LSF = 90 ft^2
