What does RAW (Amsterdam) stand for?

We purchased a hat while in Amsterdam that has the acronym/word RAW on it. Does anyone know what it means?

Probably nothing, like a lot of printed T-shirts?

At first I thought it might be for Reggae Ambassadors Worldwide but who knows?

So let me see if I understand this. You purchased a hat that says something without having a clue what it says? Aren't you afraid it stands for something obscene or something you wouldn't want to be indentified with?
When you look in a mirror, does it say WAR?
Could it be Ready and Willing with some sexual meaning? Hey, this was Amsterdam, right?
The possibilities are endless.

My guess would be Reggae Ambassadors Worldwide. Amsterdam is a MAJOR reggae town on the world circuit.

It's a format for capturing digital images. As opposed to JPEG.

This is waaaaay off the topic, but I noticed a lot of T-shirts in Europe this summer with odd sayings in English, much like the ones we see in the States with French or Italian words. My favorite was "Discount Acupuncture," which I saw in Tübingen, Germany. I don't know quite why that calls up strange images in my mind, but it does.

Perhaps the hat has remained uncooked?
