True to its origins Mumin teapot

The Moomin True to it's origin's teapot by Arabia despicts Tove Jansson's journey in her own emotional life. The beautiful teapot made from durable vitro porcelain has a practical tea strainer for your favorite tea leaves. This, combined with the large grip-friendly handle, tight-fitting lid and the pour-friendly spout, make the teapot ideal both for breakfast with the family or afternoon tea with friends. The teapot with the Moomin motifs can be mixed and matched with Moomin mugs, Moomin plates and Moomin bowls all with different motifs for a colourful and inviting table setting.

The black and white motif is designed by Tove Slotte and is based on two of Tove Jansson's books, Moominpappa at Sea from 1965 and Moomin Valley in November from 1970. Both books have a somewhat somber tone. In Moominpappa at Sea, the Moomin family has decided to move to a lighthouse on an island. The sea is unpredictable and everyone experiences the new environment in different ways. Moomintroll keeps to himself, Moominpappa tries to understand the forces of nature and Moominmamma longs for home. Little My is the only one unaffected. She feels neither the mystery of the island nor the gloomy atmosphere.

Tove Jansson wrote Moominvalley in November shortly after she lost her own mother. The book does not contain Moomintroll, but instead is about other residents in Moomin Valley who long for Moomintroll to return and who all have different reasons to visit the Moomin house. Fillyjonk, Hemulen, Mymlan, Snufkin and the others remain in the house and in their absence they try to live in the same way as their dear Moomin family in the process they learn a lot about themselves. The story therefore reflects Tove Jansson's own feelings of loss, grief and longing and how she developed internally during this time of loss.
