Mug Hibernation was launched in the autumn of 2015 and it continues the theme of greyish colours after the 2014 seasonal winter mug. The light grey mug with red highlights pictures Moomin family hibernating. The original images are from Tove Jansson’s book Moomin Midwinter. Tove Slotte created multiple drafts of the mug, and the drafts were seen in a catalog created for Finnish Design 2017-exhibition in Japan. Seasonal stickers have been used in the mugs since 2006.
