Raw is a word used to describe a substance that is in its natural form, that is, it has not been processed, or has not gone through the last phases of processing. For instance, raw food if that which has not gone through the process of cooking, whereas raw silk refers to silk that has not yet been processed.

Substances that are processed and are used as ingredients in the manufacturing process to make a finished product are called as raw materials. For example, sand is one of the raw materials to make glass. It refers to something that is not yet finished.

In another context, it is also used to refer to something that is very impressive or impactful. For instance, "I was blown away by her raw talent".
