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.

From the minute one walks in the door, whether coming in through the workshop from the river side or from Nguyen Thai Hoc street into the retail store, one is enveloped in the sense of goodwill here at Reaching Out. The staff are genuinely welcoming, in a caring manner, so unlike the "hard sell" that one encounters in other shops... More

What a special place. Lovely staff, everything hand made on site by staff who have disabilities and who are treated fairly, equally and with the respect and dignity that should automatically happen in society. Beautiful things, priced in Dollars and lots of choice and variety, for example, fabrics, silks, earth ware, jewellery, tea pots, cushions, duvet covers, wooden items etc... More
