Of course, in a beautiful package. The Japanese value presentation.

"MIZUHIKI is an extremely thin (1 mm) and strong paper cord. It can be used singly or in combination with other colors. MIZUHIKI is traditionally used to make knotted shapes of animals and plants. Or, it's possible to make 'KANZASHI' hair ornaments."

I bought mine from Karaku on Etsy, they have a bunch of beautiful Japanese fabrics and crafty goodness.
