In the winter of 2008 Arabia launched the third winter seasonal mug. Just like the earlier winter mugs, the 2008 version continued in the same style with its dark blue background. Designer Tove Slotte has chosen all the images from the same source; Tove Jansson’s comic #5 Moomin’s Winter Follies. Slotte combined elements from different parts of the comic to create the big picture. Season stickers have been used in seasonal products since 2006.
