2020 marks 75 years since the first Moomin book was published, and to celebrate this, Arabia is marking the 21 regular Moomin mug in the collection with a special gold-coloured stamp printed on the bottom of the Moomin mugs for a limited period. The price of these mugs is the same as the regular mugs. The mugs will arrive with us Friday 14th August 2020.
In 1990, Arabia started reproducing the Moomin dishes in the iconic Teema shape. It was then, 30 years ago, that ceramist and illustrator Tove Slotte began illustrating Arabia’s Moomin collection, and her work still continues. One of the most popular mugs illustrated by Slotte is the Love mug from 1996. It is still in production, and one of the top five most popular mugs today. Slotte explains that many people started collecting Moomin mugs with the Love mug, and she believes that the illustration’s emotional appeal is the reason for the mug’s popularity.
Now, Arabia will celebrate the Moomins’ 75th anniversary year with a special collection of the Classics mugs with a celebratory stamp. The gold-colored stamp says “Moomin 75” and it is illustrated with a picture of Moominpappa, Moominmamma and Moomintroll in a warm hug.
