'5sense' is located in Kagawa Prefecture, where textile industry is traditional one.
Olive is one of the specialties of Kagawa Prefecture Shoudoshima island.
The olive oil has a moisturizing effect.
It can be used for not only cooking but also skin care.
We developed unique textile containing a lot of microencapsulated Shodoshima olive oil.
It is the technology only '5sense' has in Japan.
Using this technology, we manufacture and sell products of high quality material and good feel to touch, such as socks and gloves 'olive sara' series.
We work carefully from planning to packing on each product
It’s because of factory direct, we can deliver the best quality and value to price.
In the beginning, we knew that olive oil has a moisturizing effect.
We thought if socks contain olive oil, rough skin will be moist only wearing.
Kagawa Prefecture Shoudoshima island was the first place in Japan growing olive tree a hundred years ago.
Through trial and error, we developed textile containing microencapsulated olive oil,
using high quality pure olive oil made in Shoudoshima island.
Our olive oil socks and gloves are not oily but moist, smooth and silky. They are effective in skin care of the roughness of the hands and feet.
