Chrysolite – made in Namibia for the world



In a country, where manufacturing of products is rare, a young Namibian entrepreneur has developed a shoe line, Chrysolite.


The shoe line named Chrysolite is designed for women as a unique Namibian-made shoes that are relatable to the African heritage and cultural styles. Owner of the shoe line, Kleopas Malima told unwrap.online that the shoes are manufactured in Windhoek and will hit the market today. The shoes will be sold at the Clean Kicks shop in Windhoek.


“The target market for the Chrysolite shoes are women, who take pride in African heritage and embrace the cultural patterns,” said Malima.


Despite the shoes expected to hit the shelves by next week, Malima said there are still challenges hindering the plans of mass production.


“Challenges are many but the biggest test is that of acquiring the right machinery and equipment especially in the midst of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic that has affected the world of trade, we are, however, doing with what we have at the moment,” he said.


Malima has revealed that the company has three employees so far, but will look to add more as the business advance.


“We envision our shoes selling across all corners of Africa as we aim at growing the shoe line to great heights and become a great contributor to the Namibian Gross Domestic Product (GDP).”
