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 jewellery of white brass and silver 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.

A really nice way to support the disabled. Unique handicrafts to the region with one of a kind pieces, as opposed to the typical tourist fare.

“What a very special place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Let's face it. Most of us go to the lovely Hoi An to shop. This is the third time I've been to Hoi An in the last four years but I can never resist going back. It is just lovely to walk into a shop that puts no pressure on you to buy anything. The products are very beautiful and are all made by Vietnamese people with disabilities. It is a very special place where you can find really lovely gifts and the welcome is always worth it! You must go here!
