True to its origin
Moomin jug with the motif True to its origins, inspired by the stories Moominpappa at Sea and Moominvalley in November. This beautiful jug belongs to the Moomin collection for the autumn 2017 and is manufactured for the Finnish brand Arabia. The stories are written by Tove Jansson and were published in 1965 and 1970. The story Moominpappa at Sea is about the Moomin family moving to a lighthouse by sea and raises questions about what people can learn from new environments. The story Moominvalley in November is a melancholic and emotional depiction that reflects Tove Jansson's grief after her mother passed away. The black and white motif can be seen as a representation of Tove Jansson's ability to depict different moods and emotions by illustrations.
The illustrations are designed by Tove Slotte and are based on Tove Jansson's original illustrations.
