ELSA BESKOW AND MUURLA

The Elsa Beskow series was launched in 2017. It consists of enamelware, glass and candle items. The characters from Beskow's famous novels bring colour and joy to table settings and through our Elsa Beskow series.

ELSA BESKOW

Elsa Beskow (1874-1953) was born in Stockholm, Sweden. Elsa's aunts and uncles became the real life inspiration for Aunt Green, Aunt Brown, Aunt Lavender and Uncle Blue. The first time Elsa's pictures, stories and verses were published was in 1894 in the children's magazine "Jultomen" (Father Christmas). Her children's book debut was in 1897 with the picture book The Tale of the Little, Little Old Woman, a classic that most children know of even today. Elsa Beskow's pictures dominated the picture book art scene for almost 50 years and surely many of today's picture books artists have been influenced by her artwork.

MOOMIN AND MUURLA

Muurla's first Moomin items were launched in 2009. At first the collaboration resulted in glass and other decorative items, but in 2011 it was accompanied by the Moomin enamel series, which consists of mugs, bowls, jars and cookware. The colourful and fun Moomin items bring joy to homes and kitchens.

TOVE JANSSON

The Moomins are fairytale characters created by Tove Jansson (1914 - 2001), a Finnish pictorial artist and author. The first Moomin book was published in 1945 and today her books have been translated into 44 languages. The first TV-animation was created in 1969 and since then different animations have been aired in over 100 countries.
