True to its origin
Moomin mug with the motif True to its origins, inspired by the stories Moominpappa at Sea and Moominvalley in November. This beautiful mug 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 familiar stories that hide behind the motifs make the Moomin mugs something more than just an ordinary mug for hot beverages. Over the years, Tove Jansson's stories of the adventures in the Moominvalley have become classics that captivate both children and adults. When you give away a Moomin Mug as a gift, you also give away a story that will live on for generations. The mugs are suitable for all ages and can be combined with several parts from the same tableware collection. Pick your favourite motif, or combine several stories and let your new dinnerware represent something bigger than just a porcelain series.
The illustrations are designed by Tove Slotte and are based on Tove Jansson's original illustrations.
