In just a few weeks, in the middle of May, Arabia will launch a new exquisite Moomin mug, result of their collaboration with Tampere Art Museum. The mug is illustrated with one Tove Jansson’s aquarelle which was painted for the cover of the french version of the book “Finn Family Moomintroll” in 1968.
In the story Moomintroll , Sniff and Snufkin find the hat of the Hobgoblin, that magically changes things. Eggshells turn into clouds and the Moomins begin to fly on them. The Hobgoblin is looking for the world’s biggest jewel and he wants to get Thingummy and Bob’s ruby. All is well in the end and Moominmamma throws a party where everyone is invited to celebrate.
Arabia has worked with the City of Tampere and Tampere Art Museum to choose a representative piece from their collection to create this beautiful mug as a tribute to Finland’s centenary, with the theme “Together”.
