Value through Kansei

A recent concept popular in Japanese manufacturing is Kansei value, or the idea creating products that appeal to all five senses of the consumer. Kansei value heightens customer satisfaction and trust.
Using a storehouse of information collected over the past 180 years, NAGASE has the ability to offer Kansei value to our customers through premium colors, materials, and functions that are both visually and sensually appealing.

Color of the year 2021

Japan Fashion Color Association (JAFCA)publishes “color trends ” every year.

Taking advantage of that experience, we selected a color symbolizing "this year's color, next year's color", and we publish it on November 16.
