Overview
More
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.

Really glad we went here. Sales staff were lovely and the quality is great. Yes- it’s not as cheap as everywhere else but your purchases help people who face more obstacles than most.

After having snacks at Reaching Out tea house, we walked over to here to have a look at their beautiful tea sets. The pieces here are really nice though not cheap. There are many other souvenirs to buy too, and all for a good cause.

We are very proud of all the designs created by our staff. Our fair trade prices and wages allow our team members to live independently and the fixed prices make it easy to shop. Thank you for your review and 5 star rating.
