    At Finlayson, we decided to really put our hearts into reimagining our collection of Moomin towels. We created storylines between the pairs of hand towels and bath towels, gave the original illustrations more room to shine and adjusted the colours to bring them closer to the original tones used by Tove Jansson. What’s more, we also changed the material: all Moomin towels are now made of 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton!


    The illustration for the Groke hand towel comes from the Moomin comic strip. The Groke is a dark, ominous creature whose frightening presence scares everyone wherever she goes. Loneliness has made the Groke so cold that she freezes everything around her. In the book Moominland Midwinter, even a bonfire made by the inhabitants of Moominvalley is extinguished when the Groke sits on it when she wants to warm herself. However, the Groke’s story has a happy ending. In the story, Moominpappa at Sea, Moomintroll and the Groke find a kind of harmony, making the Groke grow warmer.


    The Jacquard-woven Groke bath towel is durable yarn-dyed quality. The quality of the towel is the result of lengthy product development. The fine plied yarn is combined with a carefully thought-out weave structure, and all features are refined to perfection. The end result is exactly the right feel.


    The towel’s area weight is 460m2. Towels with a weight of 400–500 g/m2 are durable and ideal for daily use. They also dry relatively quickly and have excellent absorbency.


    Here’s a tip: Get Moomin towels with different characters for each member of your family. This makes it easy for everyone to identify their own bath towels. Take a look at the Groke hand towel and other Moomin towels and products as well.


    The designs of Finlayson’s Moomin products are based on Tove Jansson’s original illustrations and they are genuine ©Moomin Characters™ licensed products.


    The towel comes with a five-year guarantee and a STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX certificate. Together, these prove that the product is of high quality, safe and does not contain harmful chemicals.
