Boutis is a handcraft originated in Provence, France in 17-18th centuries. Maidens could not get married before completing their boutisses back then. Boutis is hand made, embroidered and filled later. The motifs are embroidered with chain stitch or stem stitch on the fabric with lining, then the gap in between is filled resulting in the puffed appearance.
