Is any one aware of a word that describes appreciation for objects that are weathered? I believe it's from an island culture, and the concept is that though the object is worn out, it's in an interesting, kind of cool way. I also think it may be the same word twice, something like Palo Palo.

Response by poster: Thanks Hooks. That looks like what I couldn't remember.
