Yoshiteru Yamamura represents and owns the family Yamamura Kasuri Koubo workshop and he is the third generation involved in this craft. Yoshiteru along with his wife actively promotes Kurume Kasuri as a member of the Kurume Kasuri Safeguarding Association.

In his facility, the patterns are „encoded” by hand, and so are prepared the threads for weaving. The fabrics are dyed with the use of chemicals. The weaving shop is partially mechanised, but about 20 machines it uses date back to pre-war times. The workshop specializes in the production of a large variety of patterns and colors, from the traditional to modern ones. The application of a thick thread gives their fabrics the look of made entirely by hand.

Several prizes and awards obtained during the annual state contest and the fair of traditional artistic crafts in Kurume confirm the high quality of fabrics of Yamamura Kasuri Koubo.
