Boutis Roving and cotton yarn
The Lebaufil special cotton N°8, in white or ecru, is used for emphasis in boutis or trapunto. The roving is acrylic and is used for the same but for stuffing larger designs. Boutis is a technique of Provençal quilting. It consists of sewing a motif on two layers of fabric, usually white, and then stuffing the motifs to make them stand out. Generally, boutis, also known as Marseille quilting, is done on two identical fine fabrics, to give an illusion of transparency. It is similar and apparently inspired by the Italian trapunto, where the fabrics are thicker, so do not have the same translucid effect.
