The light blue mug called Peace was released in 1996 and production was discontinued in 2002. Tove Slotte chose the artwork from Tove Jansson’s comic #04 Moomin’s Desert Island. Slotte also used an image from a postcard designed by Tove Jansson in 1982. The images chosen for the mug remind us of Tove Jansson’s values and that she collaborated with charities, including Amnesty International.
