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.

We loved this shop. The tea sets were my favourite. We purchased a set and think it's one of the most beautiful I've seen. And I was shocked at the price, extremely reasonable. If in Hoi An please visit this shop. Not only can you buy something unique and beautiful, it helps a very good cause.

We got 90% of our gifts and souvenirs here. Great staff, beautiful items, reasonably priced, and for a wonderful cause. Loved this place.

Reaching out is a charity that supports people with disabilities. You can watch the people working at the back of the shop. They are very skilled and do intricate work. It is exciting to then go into the shop and buy items that you saw being made. The items are high quality and reasonably priced. My granddaughter loved the monkey and we also purchased some hanging photo frames made of fabric. They are beautiful and so well made. Please go they deserve loads of support.

We went many times and each time we saw something more beautiful than the last visit and bought a number of items. They are not souvenirs they are items of high class and ones that will always remind one of Hoi An when you use them. Staff in the store very helpful and friendly. Great to help the skilled craftsmen and women by bringing such lovely gifts home. Don't forget to go upstairs the items there, table runners, table cloths, place mats, silk robes just beautiful.

Thanks for the hint about visiting the upstairs showroom. Many people miss seeing these exquisite fabric items.
