I'm just commenting here because this post is from 2006 and I still have and cherish my flower embossed Sienna and I always get unsolicited compliments from it from perfect strangers. It is one of Kooba's best ever bags that they ever made.
I'm not a Sienna fan (though I LOVE Koobas!) but I do very much like the embossed one. I agree with Compass Rose--it would definitely bring a compliment from me if I saw someone carrying it!
