Tove Jansson

Tove Jansson was a multi-talented artist who is mostly remembered as the creator of the Moomins. Her stories about the peace-loving and tolerant Moomins is a global phenomenon and has made her one of the most successful childrens authors of all times.

The island of Klovharun became a haven, passion and a never-ending source of inspiration

”There is a surprisingly large number of people who go around dreaming of an island” Tove Jansson wrote. She was among those who got to fulfil their dream. 

Jansson’s long life by the sea forms a clear basis for her stories. She spent almost all her summers in Pellinki archipelago in the Gulf of Finland – and preferably moved out there early in the spring each year. For over 20 years she spent several months in the outermost archipelago at the island of Klovharu, with her life partner Tuulikki Pietilä. “The girls”, as the locals would call them, went out to the island in April and usually stayed until September.

The Moomin storie are like love letters dedicated to nature: even the smallest critters and plants are described and illustrated, and the forces of nature are described with respect and grandeur. Those who wish can also interpret deeper meanings from the descriptions of nature.

The story behind the motifs

The motifs on the Moomin to go cups and bottles come from the story of ”The Moomin-troll and the Magic Hat.” After a violent storm, the Moomin-troll and his friends go for a walk through the Moomin Valley in search of things that the storm has brought into the valley. 

The Moomin-troll finds a large black hat and takes it home. It turns out that the hat can do many things, among others, it can turn eggshells into clouds that the Moomin-troll and his friends play with all day.
