About Arabia Finland
Founded in 1873 as a subsidiary of a Swedish ceramics company, Arabia Finland grew rapidly to become the largest manufacturer of tableware in Finland. At this time, there was an ever-increasing demand for tableware. Arabia produced a wide variety of products, many of which were decorated by leading Scandinavian artists and met with great success.
The demand for Arabia products in Russia and subsequently America was high but eventually waned. The company, however, proved adept at adapting to international trends and introducing new ranges which appealed to diverse markets. Re-inventing themselves yet again for the twentieth century, Arabia began to develop new decorative techniques and create more contemporary pieces, some of which were designed by architects. Novelty collections were soon introduced and the success story continued.
The Moomin collection features what are perhaps Arabia's best-known ceramics. The adorable Moomins enable Arabia to partner their fine Scandinavian tableware with the much-loved Finnish characters to create a unique and profoundly nostalgic range.
