This black and white mug, True to its Origins, was released in 2017 together with a line of products, and the mug is still in production. True to its Origins is almost completely black and white, but there are a few yellow details in the design. The design respects Tove Jansson’s original way of using lines in her artwork. The original images are from Jansson’s novel Moominpappa at Sea. A bowl, two different sized jars, a serving bowl, a plate and a pitcher complete the series.
