Snufkin by Lovi is inspired by the wagabond of the Moomin stories. A naturally living philosopher does not want to own anything; a tent, a harmonica and the clothes he is wearing are enough. Owning anything would make life too complicated. He was created after the original illustrations by Tove Jansson, the beloved author and illustrator of Moomin stories.
Snufkin is Moomintroll‘s best friend. In the summertime, they spend time together adventuring, fishing and chatting, but in the fall, in November, Snufkin travels south, returning to Moomin Valley again on the first day of spring.
This little character from Moomin valley wears a forest green coat and presses a brimmed hat on his head, under which he looks at the world. The hat is decorated with a feather, said to have fallen from a condor eagle seen flying in the sky in the book Comet in the Moominland.

“Stars!” he exclaimed. “Then I must come with you. Stars are my favorite things. I always lie and look at them before I go to sleep and wonder who is on them and how one could get there. The sky looks so friendly with all those little eyes twinkling in it.”
