Description

The Friendship mug from Arabia’s Moomin collection is illustrated with a scene from Tove Jansson's beloved picture book, Who Will Comfort Toffle? (1960). The illustration depicts the magical moment when the story's lonely, timid main character, Toffle, meets Miffle for the first time in a wildflower meadow.

The first pieces of Arabia’s Moomin tableware came out already in the 1950s, and their 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.
