Reaching Out is a social enterprise, training and employing persons with disabilities. Our artisans create beautiful gifts of high quality from tea ware patterned after that used by the Imperial family in Hue to elegant table ware and bedspreads of colourful silks. Our silver jewellery is designed in-house by our staff and made right on the premises. Customers are invited to visit the workshop which is right behind the retail store to watch how their purchases have been made.

Our staff are willing to answer your questions and of course can tell you the details of the processes by which your gifts are crafted.

They will also proudly show you to our Tea House, where you can experience a cup of coffee or tea, served in the traditional Vietnamese manner by our speech and hearing impaired staff.

Everything about this store is amazing! The team produce some amazing product lines that are hard to say no to! We walked in for a second time looking for a particular item and each walked out with multiple items! Detail in workmanship is very hard to come by but this store has it in spades!

The items are of stunning quality and support an amazing initiative. Worth your... More

Found this store by accident just wandering around. Beautifully crafted jewellery pieces which made for lovely gifts for yourself and as gifts for friends. They employ people with disabilities and you can also watch then at work at the back. A beautiful concept. Upstairs there's textiles pieces and artworks as well. Similar to other reviewers, I bought a few things... More
