Arabia’s Moomin seasonal bowl for winter 2019-2020 is called Crown Snow-Load and it features Tove Slotte’s illustration, based on Tove Jansson’s book Moominland Midwinter from 1957, of Moomintroll who has woken up from his hibernation. In the illustration, Moomintroll ventures out into the snow-covered Moominvalley while the rest of the family is still fast asleep, and encounters the tiny Toffle as well as Little My who has been sleeping in a cave. The ceramic Moomin bowls cheer up any table setting, and their simple design is great for serving soup, cereals as well as desserts.

New products of the Moomin Seasonals collection are released twice a year and they are available for a limited time only. 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.
