Once a staple in households across South Africa, it seems the enamel mug is now a trendy must-have!

South Africans all over Twitter have called out a popular clothing brand for selling a single enamel mug for R199.

The outrage comes as other retailers charged substantially less for a similar mug, as the enamel mug is a staple in many households across South Africa.

According to their website, the retail giant sells the mug, which comes in pink, blue, and green, along with a matching bowl and plate for an additional R399.

A similar mug can be bought for just R9.99 at other retailers in South Africa.
