I have some Florentine bags that look to be like pebbled leather. They have a more pebbly texture and seem to show scratches less than the smooth Florentines. Some of my bags, such as my flap tab satchel have some spots that are more pebbled and other spots that are less so. Nothing too obvious though. The flap part is more smooth as well because the leather is more structured. My vachetta satchel is smooth pretty much all over. Before it developed a patina it used to show scratches more. I'm not sure which type of florentine I prefer...I think either is nice. Some say the pebble type florentine looks too much like regular pebble leather but to me, it still looks fine. I do like though when the bag has a more or less even texture throughout the whole bag. I have passed up more than a few that had very obvious contrasting textures throughout the bag. Some might not mind at all though, some say it gives the bag more character. Everyone's preference is diff. I have bought the florentine natural bags so texture is a bit more obvious than say, black.
