serving clients throughout North America, Western Europe, Gulf States, Far East & Australasia
Do you have a significant investment in a quality wardrobe or in a few prized garments? Is ordinary cleaning® rapidly depreciating your bespoke, made-to-measure, designer, high fashion, specialty and couture garments? Your fine casual wear? Your fine household textiles such as bed and table lines, comforters and duvet covers. And your fine accessories such as handbags and footwear?
This website is designed for those who seek factual, accurate information about true quality cleaning® for fine garments, household textiles and accessories.
There’s a distinct difference between true quality cleaning and ordinary, bang and hang cleaning. Think about it this way: True quality cleaning is to ordinary, bang and hang cleaning what artisan bread is to Wonder Bread.
Think of our website as a 24/7 trade show for answers all your questions relating to the restoration, cleaning, finishing, repair, storage and preservation of fine garments, household textiles and accessories.
We're probably the only garment, household textile and accessory care company in the USA that'll tell you – in detail – what we do, how we do it and why we do it the RAVE FabriCARE way.

“I have used a number of "high-end" dry cleaners throughout the U.S.A. My last "go to" dry cleaners was Brown's Cleaners, in Santa Monica, CA. Brown's is a very good dry cleaner. However, Brown's Cleaners does not hold a candle/cannot compete with the efficacy, quality and service provided by Rave Fabricare. I highly recommend Rave Fabricare for all expensive/high-end garments. In my experience, Rave Fabricare is the best cleaners that I have ever used. They have never disappointed me. They are highly effective, very efficient and have great communication. They are expensive, but worth every penny.”
“I've been bringing my business attire and designer clothing here for over 10 years. Nobody comes close to RAVE and they have the awards and reputation to prove it. People ship their clothing from all around the world here and once you've seen and felt the difference you'll know why. The owner, Stu, is an absolute encyclopedia of knowledge. Yes, it's complicated but, if you have a question, he's got the answer. Sure it costs a lot but it's not a place you would bring off the rack clothes. I've had dress shirts that are tailored last as long as I've been coming here. They still look new after 10 years! Would you rather pay $50-$75 for a white dress shirt and have it fall apart after 2 years of use after taking it to a corner dry cleaner, or pay $500-$750 for a tailored shirt that looks great, that you can use and keep looking new for over a decade? The break even is about 4.8 years if you're buying a tailored shirt and bringing it here to have cleaned. You can look cheap and pay for a cheaper cleaner, or you can dress to impress, pay the same amount over time and have your amazing clothes last! Thank you RAVE. You've never let me down!!”
“I can honestly say I have tried just about every dry cleaner in the Valley and no one stands up to the care and quality of RAVE. That's why they call themselves "Master Cleaners" because they have proven it over and over.”
“Very nice people work here. They do outstanding work. If you are looking for service and commitment, this is the place for you.”
“The clothes come out looking like new and, in some cases, better than new. Antique Italian silk dresses are beautifully cleaned and renewed. Worth every penny spent here! Handbag repair is excellent also.”
“They can handle anything and make it great!”
“I wear higher-end men's clothing: Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece, Grieves & Hawkes, and similar marks. When my clothing needs to be cleaned, I ship it to RAVE FabriCARE. Yes, they charge more, and transit adds time and cost, but they are simply the best. I am a very satisfied customer.”
“I have been a client of RAVE FabriCARE for approximately 17 years. They are the only dry cleaning service I trust for my designer clothes, accessories, household textiles, etc. The staff is friendly and professional. Stu and his team always "go that extra mile." That's why I give them such high marks. They're the best in the business.”
“This place is really as good as it gets. If you have any item, especially expensive, this is the only place you should go. After a major flood in our house, we had many items that we thought were lost – shoes, purses and clothes. Every single item was able to be restored. Not to mention how well they saved my favorite pair of designer shoes. Wish I took a before and after picture because I can't believe how good they look! This is the only place I trust with cleaning, shoe repair, handbag cleaning, hemming, etc. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.”
“RAVE is the best dry cleaners ever! I started using RAVE when I lived in Scottsdale in the 1990s and I was amazed. I've never met anyone as knowledgeable and passionate about cleaning clothes as Stu is. I left the area in 2000 but to this day, whenever I have a worrisome stain on an expensive item, I send it down to RAVE and they work miracles. Most recently, I sent down an old men's cardigan sweater – one of those with a suede front panel – that my husband had inherited from his dad. Not only was the sweater stained, but it had numerous moth holes. We received it back this week and it is stunning! The reweaving is perfect and the stains are gone. It truly looks like a new sweater. I recommend (RAVE) to everyone who has a significant investment in their clothing.”
“RAVE can clean almost anything – they are masters at their craft. They also pick up and deliver, which is super convenient. They have saved so many of my favorite clothing items and handbags that I thought were beyond hope.”
“I know you guys are the best dry cleaner in the US, but do you have a recommendation for someone living in China?”
“You do the best job.”
“After 30 years crafting the world's finest custom shirts, I am now finally acquainted with someone who knows more than I about fine garment care, and who has refused to be part of the dumbing down of the garment care business.”
“RAVE FabriCARE in Scottsdale is probably the best cleaner in the country. I use their Nationwide Clean By Mail program. More expensive though.”
“...The country's best dry cleaner and laundry!”
“Stu Bloom is with RAVE FabriCARE and I had the pleasure of meeting him at the NYC Collection Of Sartorial Excellence. He is a great gentleman with an incredible knowledge of proper clothing care....”
“Internationally renowned dry cleaner.”
“RAVE FabriCARE. Best dry cleaner in the nation. My shirts love them. Always exciting to get some renewed shirts back.”
“RAVE FabriCARE. A great dry cleaner. Would use (them) again.”
“As soon as you enter, you realize this is no ordinary dry cleaner. If you have a chance to chat with the owner, Stu Bloom, you realize this man is passionate about dry cleaning. I've been going to RAVE for the past year, and hands down, they are the best cleaners I have ever used. There knowledge and expertise regarding the cleaning process and their attention to detail is extraordinary. My garments look better than new when I pick them up. You will pay more than your average cleaner here, but if you're a stickler for quality, it's worth it.”
“I'm sorry to say that I listened to the sales staff at Turnbull & Asser who recommended a cleaner here in New York. I should have just ignored their advise and followed what I know to be the best. Please forgive me.”
