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.

Thanks for reporting the safe arrival of your goods. Customers are still a little leery of sending their purchases home...but we pack very carefully. Enjoy your teapot and other table​ ware! More

This shop is a must see in Hoi An. The shop is composed of two sections, the workshop in which you can walk through and see the employees at work and the crafts store where you can purchase items that have been made directly in the workshop. 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

I love the mission of this establishment, to employ those with disabilities. I bought several items and wish I had gone back for more. A great reminder that everyone is valuable.

I was so pleased to find this shop. I wanted a new silk sleeping bag liner but even though all the stall holders told me the ones they sold were 100% silk I wasn't convinced. Then I found this lovely shop and knew I'd found the real thing. The staff were really helpful and everything in the shop was beautiful.... More

Reaching Out not only has the most beautiful gifts we saw in our 2 weeks traveling the whole country, but the proceeds also support a worthy cause of artisans with disabilities.

This little store came highly recommended by various people (as well as Trip Advisor reviews) and we were not disappointed. Absolutely gorgeous jewellery and homewares. Delightful artists and craftspeople and very friendly sales assistants. Please make sure you stop by and support this incredibly wonderful group of people!
