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.
Above: The Sasawashi Flat Sheet (from $410 for full/double) is available in both beige and gray.
Above: The innovative Fitted Sheet has a top woven with washi and the antibacterial Kumazasa plant and natural cotton siding. A full/double size is $326.

Above: Like the rest of the Sasawashi collection, the off-white Duvet Cover is chemical-free; $420 for full/double.
Above: “Handmade and breathable” washi keeps pillowcases cool and crisp; $63 each.
Above: A Sasawashi Lounge Pillow, filled with buckwheat, can be used for bed or travel; $118.
Sasawashi bedding is made to order, so please note that delivery may take three to four weeks.
