Arabia Finland Moomin Ceramics
Who doesn't love the Moomins? Created by Finnish illustrator Tove Jansson, these appealing little characters have become firm favourites across the globe. In case you haven't met them yet, the Moomins are white woodland creatures with large snouts and something of a resemblance to hippos. They live in the fairy tale world of Moominvalley where there is always an abundance of adventures to enjoy.
Tove Jansson's endearing original drawings have been transferred to Arabia Finland's beautiful ceramics thanks to the skill of Finnish artist Tove Slotte-Elevant. After achieving such a favourable reaction to her collaboration with Arabia, the range of drawings has been further expanded to complement their tableware and has achieved amazing results.
We are delighted to be able to bring you the enchanting Moomin collection from Arabia Finland. Featuring mugs, bowls plates and jugs, the highly collectible range enables you to create wonderful sets for children but also for big kids as these are pieces which will always raise a smile. Loved by generations of devotees, the Moomins provide a perfect and much cherished gift for almost any occasion.
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.
