Writer and illustrator
Tove Jansson

Tove Jansson was born on 9 August, 1914. In 2004, exactly 90 years later, Moomin’s Day was celebrated for the first time as a tribute the her artwork and heritage. Now, the fifteenth Moomin’s Day is being commemorated by Arabia through a mug that carries the day’s name and meaning with it. Moomin’s Day is already a phenomenon in Japan, where the day is filled with Moomin events and celebration.

The island in the picture is near Tove’s summer retreat, where she spent many unforgettable days. Her love of the sea and nature has always been an important part of her stories and illustrations. Visually, the Moomin’s Day mug is reminiscent of Night Sailing, one of Arabia’s Moomin mugs from 2010.
