About Us


The Chipantha Story told by founder, Dalisey Brooks.

My name is Dalisey. Even as a little girl who owned only 1 red dress and no shoes, I loved fashion. chipanthaDespite my shyness, I have worked in the retail industry of South Africa to develop communication skills and self-esteem. By day, I design and sell quality sandals, accessories and clothing. By night, I study Bachelor of science in Business Management with Finance emphasis through BYU. Having first-hand experience with poverty, I believe in serving and giving back to the community.  My brand, “Chipantha,” is named after my Grandfather. He didn't see me as a helpless little girl in a village. He saw who I might become. He gave me the ability to persevere. The products I design are uniquely hand crafted to empower and make you feel comfortable, valuable and inspired. 

Dalisey's unique line of sandals and accessories use colorful fabrics, soft ropes, and leather available in South Africa. “Having first-hand experience with poverty, I believe in serving and giving back to the community. The products are hand crafted there in Cape Town. My brand, “Chipantha,” is named after my Grandfather. He didn't see me as a helpless little girl in a village. He saw who I might become. He gave me the ability to persevere,” explains Dalisey.
