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.

“Great cause, great items, well worth it”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

After visiting the tea shop, which was such a nice tranquil place to spend some time after being a bit shopped out! The tea was lovely and a bit different and also the coffee.

We then visited the craft shop and saw many items that we would definitely buy! Although more expensive than other places, they were still much cheaper than at home and much better quality. It goes without saying that the cause is excellent too, so all in all it's a winner.

A must visit for anyone visiting Hoi An.

“Well made crafts, good cause & good value”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

If one is going to spend money on vietnamese crafts, then this is the place to do it. We will always spend money on worthy causes, and these disabled artisans do a wonderful job, for which they deserve to be rewarded, Don't be a scrooge..spend up travellers!

“A must see visit”
Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

We visited RO - Hoa Nhap Handicrafts in January 2013. We had a silk Doona cover made during our short stay in Hoi An. As with the other gifts purchased all were lovely and give much delight when I use them or just look at them. I recommend any traveller visiting this lovely place, and purchasing a gift no matter how small or big as they would not be disappointed and it would be very cherished for it's uniqueness and quality.

“High quality souvenirs”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

When you want some real nice souvenirs that don't look like you bought them at the airport at the last minute, I'd go here. They also got a short tour to show their little workshop, for free. Nice place
