Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“One of the must-visit destinations in Hoi An”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2016

This is an social entrepreneur. The products here are made mostly by people with a physical handicap. And all of the stuffs here are amazing! They don't not follow any trend. Things are just extremely classy and.. unique.

My biggest regret was that i discover within the last hours in Hoi An so I almost ran out of time and money and couldn't purchase as much as I want.

Photographing is not allowed inside this shop. Just come and enjoy.
Things belonging here represent parts of the native culture so, don't hesitate to spend your time and money there. They are all worth yours.

Thank you for your review. Perhaps it will encourage other Trip Advisor readers to come earlier in their trip to see our unique products and to enjoy the atmosphere in the ancient house where we are located.

“Beautiful Vietnamese style home-ware & gifts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2016

A fair trade shop/workshop the places oozes with a positive vibe. I love the that this shop provides meaningful work for persons with disabilities.

The staff are incredibly friendly & helpful. Explaining to me who made the item and it's meaning.

If you love beautiful ceramics than you must come here. It was hard not to purchase everything! They also ship back home for you.

Prices are more expensive than most shops, but the quality and being fair-trade is why.

A must for those who love quality stuff.

“Best place in Hoi An for souvenirs, tea and coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2016

This is an amazing place: the shop sells excellent quality products made by persons with disabilities according to high social and environmental standards. It is a real pleasure to support such a valuable project!
We also really enjoyed the tea house, where both tea and coffee are excellent (we are Italian, therefore pretty demanding on coffe ;-)). The athmosphere is very calm and peaceful, waitresses are deaf-mute and invite you to enjoy the beauty of silence. Definitively a place we recommend!

“Awesome quality, service & an ethical model of business”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2016

Loved visiting this shop.

We purchased toys, children's clothes, scarves, homewares and jewellery. All great quality.

The staff were attentive, friendly and not pushy.

The store itself is transparent and allows you to observe the workers - all of whom have a disability.

A real pleasure to visit and shop.
