• What are these bags made out of?
    • All the bags are made from a marine-grade mesh. It is the same material that lobstermen and commercial fishermen use for their bait bags and chum bags. It makes a great handbag because the material is meant to be used in the ocean. It is durable, breathable, washable and water resistant!
  • Are AM products waterproof?
    • No, they are water resistant. We use a marine-grade mesh, which means that it is porous. While your bag will survive being submerged in water, your belongings inside of it will become wet.
  • Is this material re-used?
    • This material is not re-used, but repurposed.  If it were re-used it would be stinky and smelly and we don’t want to steer our customers away, we want to attract them!

    • All Alaina Marie products are made in our working studio in downtown Portland, Maine. This space is both our manufacturing facility and flagship retail store.

  • What is the most popular size?

  • How can I make returns and exchanges?
