Takeshi Yamamura belongs to the third generation of weavers of Yamamura family. Together with his father Mamoru and his son Kensuke they design and “encode” new patterns on white threads, which are then dyed by hand in the natural indigo. Hand weaving is the domain of himself and his mother - Tsunayo, while his wife specialises in the interior decoration with the use of fabrics produced by her husband. The family members are involved in the activities of the Kurume Kasuri Safeguarding Association.

Their studio - Aizome Kasuri Koubo – specialises in modern designs, while following the traditional production process: they dye the fabrics only manually in indigo and weave on handlooms. The fabrics of Yamamura family have recently gained their own brand - Yamamura Blue.
