The inspiration for the illustration for the mug is the island of Tove Jansson and her brother Lars Jansson. The illustration is originally from a brochure printed by Associated Newspapers in 1955 to market the Moomin comic strip for its newspapers around the world. They asked Tove to draw different illustrations for the brochures, including one from her island.
The Moomin characters on the mug are originally from Tove Jansson’s Moomin book Moominland Midwinter published in 1957.
The design for the illustrations on the mug is by Arabia’s Moomin mug designer Tove Slotte, based on the original illustrations of Tove Jansson.
