Moomintroll mug from Arabia’s Moomin collection portrays Moomintroll and a small Martian who has landed in the Moominvalley. The two are able to communicate through a magic box. Released in 2019, the illustration is based on Tove Jansson’s comic Moomin and the Martians from 1957.
The mugs, bowls and plates of Arabia’s Moomin Classics tableware collection illustrate the characters of the Moominvalley. First pieces of Arabia’s Moomin tableware came out already in the 1950s, and the large-scale production began in 1990. All the illustrations are done by Tove Slotte who draws inspiration from the original drawings by Tove Jansson. The form of the collection comes from Arabia’s timeless, ceramic Teema tableware designed by Kaj Franck now produced by Iittala.
