I got my Kooba Sienna in the Fall 2006 heavy Pebbled leather. And while I love it, and am glad I got it, I am also glad I have my Sienna & Scarlett in Smooth Leather too. This is much more rugged looking and a bit stiffer. I have the Frankie in the same color too. It's amazing how the same bag in a different leather can look so different.
