Based on the Tove Jansson storybook “The Little Trolls and the Great Flood”, Arabia, a Fiskars brand, has rolled out a collection of mugs highlighting the book’s Moomins characters.
The collection features each character of the Moomin valley, emphasizing the typical traits of that character’s personality. The artwork presents a different character on each mug and tells their story. The illustrations are based on Jansson’s original stories, the company said.
Designer Tove Slotte has been drawing Moomins onto Arabia items since the beginning of the 1990s with inspiration from Tove Jansson’s original illustrations, which she adapts to ceramic shapes. Her designs are now available in North America in a series of 21 mugs, sold individually.
