“We’re adding a new finish to our KOHLER faucet line this summer, and here’s a sneak peek. Introducing Vintage Nickel, with an antique vibe thanks to a unique development and production process by our innovative industrial designers and process engineers,” the post reads.

“The complexity of this finish is what makes it unique—a combination of mechanical finishing, chemical and powder coating,” engineer Mohammad Omari is quoted as saying.
