Since their initial appearance in 1945 in a book by Finnish illustrator Tove Jansson, the Moomins have won the hearts of children and adults around the world. Jansson’s iconic creations have acquired a place in Finnish culture, appearing on everything from stamps to umbrellas. Among the most collectable pieces are those by local ceramics company Arabia, a mainstay of Finnish design, which first featured Jansson’s adorable characters more than 60 years ago. Recent products include decorative wall tiles, perfect for adding a colourful and quirky touch to any home.
