 Mr. Sugihara, one of the wholesalers in the village. Here is his website.  

www.washiya.com

He might be a good help for you. 

 For artists, personally  I've been using and enjoying the one made by;

Ichibei Iwano and Yamaguchi for their 100% kozo paper for my woodblocks,

Heizaburo Iwano for his hemp paper mixed with kozo for my ink or warter color paintings,

and ShoHachi for his various kinds of paper using different materials mainly also for my ink art. 

 I don't live in a life with computers or the Internet. So I'm afraid I can't help you purchase washi made here, but hope that is helpful somehow. 

Hope you enjoy Echizen washi.
