Position Papers

Over the years, we’ve fielded many questions at RAVE FabriCARE.

Whenever we get asked a specific question on a more frequent basis, we codify our answer to that question in a Position Paper.

Each Position Paper represents our point of view and is based on the processes and craftsmanship we have employed and refined over a period of almost 30 years.

The vast majority of ordinary dry cleaners will probably disagree with our point of view.

We can live with that.
