Overview

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.

Brought some really nice gifts here and the prices were very reasonable. The quality is very good and they are made from recycled products. The staff are super friendly also.

Yes, we do use some recycled materials, especially with our products that use embroidered materials from ethnic communities. Thank you for your review.

At Reaching Out we try to keep our designs fresh, yet traditional. Our artisans are rewarded, both personally and financially if a design they create is popular in the store. Thank you for your review.
