Raw describes a material that is in its natural unprocessed form, or has not had the final stages of processing. For example, "raw food" refers to food that has not been cooked, and "raw silk" is the term for unprocessed silk. "Raw" also has symbolic meaning. See Claude Lévi-Strauss's "The Raw and the Cooked"
