A Long Winter’s Nap: An Innovative New Bedding Line from Japan

January 3, 2017

The secret to happiness? A good night’s sleep, in our opinion. On our wish list for 2017: a new line of bedding from Japanese collection Rikumo that merges “the naturally absorbent properties of washi paper” with 100 percent cotton. The result is a “superlight, crisp, lightweight sheet that allows air to circulate throughout the fibers, helping you maintain an optimal body temperature throughout the night.”  Here’s a look at what’s on offer.
