read quite a few posts here about how stiff the embossed leather siennas (and probably scarletts) are, but i haven't seen any in real life n can't really imagine the stiffness. i don't mind if it's a little stiffer than the smooth leather but is it as stiff or worse than the pebbled ones? think i read lexie's post in other thread that wearing hers was like wearing a board. is it that bad? m thinking of getting an embossed scarlett, but will it be like carrying a little paper/ cardboard/ straw/ wooden bag under your arm?
