Arabia’s Marketta mug is decorated with a pattern designed by Esteri Tomula. Like many of the prolific Finnish designer’s decorations, Marketta, Finnish for “marguerite daisy”, is based on the natural world.

Some of Tomula’s innumerable pattern designs did not make it into production, particularly the many variations she often drew of the same idea – Marketta among them. However, the pattern was dug up from Arabia’s archives in 2021 and paired with a modern, clean-lined form. The blue-toned Marketta mug is easy to combine with the other designs of Arabia’s Beloved Patterns collection as well as any minimalist, unicolour dishware, should you prefer a more uniform look. The Marketta mug is made of dishwasher, oven, microwave and freezer proof vitro porcelain – an extremely functional material perfect for everyday use.

Tomula was particularly known for abundantly decorated, expertly drawn designs often based on the natural world.
