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.

I was so pleased to find this shop. I wanted a new silk sleeping bag liner but even though all the stall holders told me the ones they sold were 100% silk I wasn't convinced. Then I found this lovely shop and knew I'd found the real thing. The staff were really helpful and everything in the shop was beautiful.... More

Reaching Out not only has the most beautiful gifts we saw in our 2 weeks traveling the whole country, but the proceeds also support a worthy cause of artisans with disabilities. We did all our gift shopping at this store and are so happy we did - we got scarves, a jade bangle, guilded chopsticks, a metal cup and table... More

This was our second trip to Hoi An and on both occasions we have visited Reaching Out Arts and Crafts. They offer a superb and wide range of hand-crafted items, including jewellery, quilts and crockery. I lost one of the silver earrings I purchased on my first visit four years ago and they generously exchanged the remaining earring for a... More

This little store came highly recommended by various people (as well as Trip Advisor reviews) and we were not disappointed. Absolutely gorgeous jewellery and homewares. Delightful artists and craftspeople and very friendly sales assistants. Please make sure you stop by and support this incredibly wonderful group of people!

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.
