Embossed crochet is a crochet technique that creates textured relief by employing front and back post double crochet stitches and the crochet designs look as if they were knit and have the quality of Aran knitting. 
Most designs worked in this amazing technique are inspired by  nature. The one below of the pink bag featuring a 3D leaf pattern has been quite popular and has taken the crochet world by a storm. 

Personally, I would love to try it and have the pattern in tow.
