Inder Bedi began his journey at the crossroads of fashion and sustainability in 1995 with his founding of MATT & NAT. His new brand 457 ANEW launched in 2020 represents a return to local production in Canada with a focus on slow fashion.
Handmade from plants, landfill and ocean waste, Inder Bedi and his team have spent years researching and developing 457 ANEW's line of outerwear, knits, and bags. The hardware is custom made locally and 1% of sales are donated to Plastic Oceans to protect our shores in Canada.
The numbers 457 were constantly appearing when developing his latest venture. Growing up around numerology, Inder was intrigued to discover that when combined they defined a spiritual path. He would later realize the numbers also represent the years that his children were born – 2004, 2005, 2007, his inspiration for a more sustainable future.
