If you are a Nordic fan, you probably love the charming Moomin characters as much as I do and might already have a collection of Moomin mugs. Well now you can get excited to add the next seasonal mug to your collection!
The new Moomin winter seasonal mug of 2020 ‘Snow Blizzard’ features Moomintroll lost in the middle of a windy blizzard, perfect for cozy moments inside when the snow is falling outside. This seasonal series continues the story of Tove Jansson’s book Moominland Midwinter (1957) and leads the Moominvalley characters from the storm to the wondrous bath house.
In her Moomin novels, Tove Jansson beautifully described different natural phenomena, such as storms and winter, and emotions related to them. The Snow Blizzard series depicts the moment when a warm wind lightly carries Moomintroll and he finally has to surrender and become part of the blizzard.
Arabia’s Moomins are turned from stories to ceramic illustrations by designer Tove Slotte. She has been drawing Moomins onto Arabia items since the beginning of the 1990s. The designer draws inspiration from Tove Jansson’s original illustrations, which she adapts to ceramic shapes. The Moomins have always been close to Tove Slotte’s heart. She articulated the significance of the Moomins nicely when she said: I think everyone should enjoy a little dose of Moomin philosophy every day.
The mug holds 3 dl and is manufactured by Arabia. The full set includes a mug, bowl, mini mugs and spoons. This series is available from 1 October 2020 to 28 February 2021 and only made as a limited set, so be quick!
