Mug Midsummer was launched as a limited edition for the summer season in 2016. Instead of a bowl, a plate with the same design was released with the mug. More red colour was used to outline the images in the mug, but as designer Tove Slotte wanted to stay loyal to Tove Jansson’s original style, some of the outlining in the characters was left black. In the green and red mug Snorkmaiden, Mymble and Fillyjonk are seen on a meadow. Seasonal stickers have been used in the mugs since 2006. Mug Midsummer is the last mug manufactured in Finland, at the Arabia factory.
