Local recognition

 

RAVE FabriCARE has been recognized over the years as “Best Of” Scottsdale and Phoenix by a number of upscale publications, including Phoenix Magazine, Trends Magazine and AZ Society Magazine.

Retailer recognition

 

RAVE FabriCARE is used and recommended by more upscale department stores, clothing boutiques, custom clothiers, bespoke tailors, bridal salons, fine linen stores, and handbag and shoe salons in the metro Phoenix area and elsewhere than all other Valley dry cleaners and restoration dry cleaners combined.

These stores and their associates know who produces the “best work” in town.

These stores know RAVE FabriCARE because they regularly call on us to clean and/or restore inventory that has soiled and customer owned garments that have been rejected as “uncleanable” or “unserviceable” or that have been improperly cleaned and/or finished by other cleaners

Over the years, we’ve demonstrated that many so-called “uncleanable” or “unserviceable” garments were eminently cleanable.

Their store associates know RAVE FabriCARE because many are, themselves, clients of ours.

These knowledgeable, upscale retailers and custom clothiers trust RAVE FabriCARE.

You can too.

If there are any high-end retailers and custom clothiers that aren’t on this list, please don’t hesitate to ask us why. Call Stu at 1.844.RAVEFABRICARE.

Knowledgeable upscale retailers and custom clothiers trust RAVE FabriCARE

Extraordinary dry cleaning and wet cleaning

 

Our technical skill, expertise and experience is unmatched anywhere in Arizona.

What do we mean by extraordinary dry cleaning and wet cleaning?

At RAVE FabriCARE, it means:

  • Garments that are exceptionally clean.
  • Spectacularly bright whites, creams and pastels (particularly if they’ve always been cleaned at RAVE FabriCARE).
  • Colors that are rich and lustrous, without that “washed out”, faded look (particularly if they’ve always been cleaned at RAVE FabriCARE).
  • Renewed, revitalized fabric textures.
  • The softest, silkiest fabric feel, even on heavy cotton sweaters.
  • Garments that are meticulously finished. Inside and out. By hand. Not by machine.
  • Garments that are carefully and thoroughly inspected. From top to bottom. From inside to outside.
  • Garments that are individually and elegantly packaged.
  • And, of course, absolutely no dry cleaning solvent smell. Or fragrance or perfume smell. Ever.

Extraordinary shirt laundry

 

We deliver the cleanest, brightest and finest hand ironed shirt in the Southwest.

And, unlike ordinary cleaners, we do this without brushing, bleaching, boiling and baking the life out of your shirts. Specifically, we don’t:

  • Scrub your collars and cuffs with nylon brushes
  • Wash your shirts in hot water
  • Use harsh, caustic industrial grade detergents
  • Add fabric-destroying bleach
  • Starch your shirts with cheap synthetic glue
  • Press your shirts by machine at the rate of 40 to 50 an hour
  • Press your shirts without first removing the collar stays
  • Return your shirts with puckered seams and wrinkled underarms
  • Crease your sleeves (unless specifically requested, and then, only, after we’ve tried to convince you otherwise)
  • Stuff your shirts in a single, narrow poly bag

Comprehensive range of other specialized fabricare services

 

In addition to dry cleaning/wet cleaning and shirt laundry, we offer a comprehensive range of other specialized fabricare services designed to meet the needs of the most discriminating of clients.

In particular, very few cleaners can match our extraordinary care for bespoke, made-to-measure, designer, high fashion, specialty and couture garments, household textiles and accessories such as fine handbags and footwear.

Wide array of supporting conveniences

 

At RAVE FabriCARE, we offer a wide array of conveniences to support our specialized fabricare services.

These conveniences include 

State-of-the-art fabricare facility

 

Our 11,000 square foot fabricare facility is one of the very finest and best equipped facilities in the Southwest.

So much so, that we were selected as one of America’s best dry cleaning facilities by the American Drycleaner Magazine.

From the moment you step into our spacious fabricare facility, you’ll recognize that there are major differences between our fabricare facility and the store fronts operated by ordinary cleaners.

In particular…

The vast majority of ordinary cleaners are designed to meet the needs of their “average customer”

By contrast, our fabricare facility has been specially designed to meet the special handling needs of our client’s bespoke, made-to-measure, designer, high fashion, specialty and couture garments, household textiles and accessories

The vast majority of ordinary cleaners are equipped and staffed to meet the needs of their “average customer”

By contrast, our fabricare facility has been specially equipped and staffed to meet the special handling needs of our client’s bespoke, made-to-measure, designer, high fashion, specialty and couture garments, household textiles and accessories

The customer service counters and drive through lanes of the vast majority of ordinary cleaners are designed to get their customers in and out.

This approach is in perfect harmony with their same day, next day, and 3 day pickup and delivery approach to “garment care.”

By contrast, our client service environment has been specially designed to be an inviting oasis in a hectic world of same day, next day, and 3 day pickup and delivery service cleaning.

When you’re in the Scottsdale Airpark, please stop on by.

It’s a difference you’ll see, smell, hear and feel.

Educational materials

 

At RAVE FabriCARE, we believe that an educated client is our best client.

In other words, the more you know about fine garment care – what we do, why we do it our way, and why we don’t do what ordinary cleaners do  – the better it is for our clients  and for us. 

That’s why our service descriptions are highly informative.

And why we are the only fabricare specialist in the USA offering clients and non-clients alike a free Resource Library of educational materials – Ebooks, Position Papers and White Papers.
