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.

This is a lovely little spot to visit with loads of treasures to buy, take home or just admire. And it is an added bonus to be able to watch the artists working in the workshop. I have now visited HoiAnn twice and on each of those visits I have made more than one visit to this great little shop.... More

Located in Hoi An, this is a lovely shop with beautiful gifts to take home or for you! My only regret is that I did not purchase more items. I bought textiles, mugs, teapots, jewelry, and more. I returned twice, and each time saw new and different items. Just go-and buy a special keepsake for yourself. All artisan made, one... More

This arts and crafts store has some great items; all made on a "fair trade" basis as well as providing work for people with disabilities. They had some great unique items, and we bought a few things for our home.

Lovely shop. Cuddled with their friendly kitten while we shopped. I got a pair of beautiful silver lantern earrings. Very accommodating and friendly staff who speak great English. All credit cards accepted with no extra fees. Highly recommend.

At certain times you can enter the workshop at the back of the shop and see all the artisans at work. They are very skilled and it's great to be able to watch them work. Reaching out sells beautiful jewellery and crockery and employees people with disabilities. Beautiful products for a worthy cause.

I visited this shop in 2013 and bought a beautiful lotus flower necklace for my daughter, which she sadly lost earlier this year. I emailed Reaching Out, and they were able to identify it, and replace it all within the space of about a week.
