Episode 48: Alaina Marie - Maine Designer & Entrepreneur

August 4, 2021

In this episode, we had a chance to chat with Maine designer and entrepreneur Alaina Marie, whose nautical themed bags and clutches have been a huge hit in and out of the state. We talked about what inspired her design aesthetic, her design process, how she overcame obstacles in business, how she defines success, and more!



Born and raised off the coast of Maine, Alaina’s surroundings have always been her source of inspiration. Established in 2013, AM is now known for its iconic mesh handbags which were inspired by a lobsterman’s bait bag, and are also made using the same marine-grade materials. Her mission is to spread color, not only in your wardrobe, but in your world. She has worked diligently to perfect her product so that each handbag is durable, authentic, and ready to go wherever life takes you.
