This Juksu pouch features a charming print with highlights from the Moomin's garden party: Moominmamma, Little My, Moomintroll and Snorkmaiden have gathered by the pear and apple trees, and Moominpappa is taking a (festive) nap. Lanterns have been lit in the garden, there are balloons here and there and a cake has been baked. Snufkin plays his accordion and everybody's enjoying themselves. A lovely summer party.
Juksu, the name of the bag style, has its origins in the book The Exploits of Moominpappa. In this book by Tove Jansson, Moominpappa is still young and ventures out to the world with his friend Joxter (in Finnish: Juksu) in a boat called Oshun Oxtra. Joxter looks a lot like his son Snufkin, a more well-known character from Moominvalley, but Joxter wears a hat with a string tied around it. Juksu pouches are shaped slightly like a raindrop, narrower on the upper part. Juksu closes with a ball clasp and includes a 51 cm long pink strap. The pouch is made of durable cotton canvas and has a polyester lining.
