Annie Meub is a self-taught sewer who produces handmade apparel from her home-studio in Scarborough, Maine. Raised in Vermont, her summers were spent visiting Maine discovering and falling in deep love with the coast. Since moving to the state she has developed her skill-set as a designer and craftsperson.

Annie-Made's mission is to curate pieces and small-batch collections that are part of a utilitarian wardrobe– clothing that is as elegant as it is easy to wear. Modest and feminine cuts made for the frame of a woman with an edge here or there that remain ageless. Her designs are entirely self sewn one at a time. The fabric for every item is bought through locally owned fabric shop , Z-Fabrics, in Portland. Each garment is thoughtfully put together to stand the test of time in fashion in the same capacity as the wearers life. She hopes that by making clothes by hand, she can contribute not only to local fashion but to the greater concept of slow fashion.
