Overview

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.

This is a social enterprise for the hearing impaired. All crafts are made in a workshop out the back. Everything is a little pricier because the money is to help those in need but it's still cheaper than a Western country. Crockery, jewellery, crafts, toys...More

Thank you. We really appreciate reviews which highlight our shipping services, as customers are often cautious about taking advantage of this great way to get purchases home AND we sure like hearing that Reaching Out was your favourite store on your journey to Vietnam!

While a little pricey, the items for sale were beautiful. I went because it was a FairTrade shop and bought because of the quality of the goods.
