Belisha beacons were introduced to British pedestrian road crossings in 1934 by the Minister of Transport Leslie Hoare-Belisha.They consist of a flashing yellow lamp at the top of a striped black and white pole. Belisha Stripe fabric is woven on an ecru cotton warp with wide bands of ecru cotton and Japanese indigo-dyed weft yarns, matching the proportions of a Belisha beacon.The indigo yarn will fade and bleed as the garment wears in and is washed, softening the stripe edges.
