I'm so excited to have you visit Spartickes Dyes. Our name is derived from our last name (ickes) combined with Spartacus, a former gladiator who led to a slave uprising.

Exerpt from Urban Dictionary on the meaning of "I am Spartacus":
Refers to a scene in the movie "Spartacus" starring Kirk Douglas as Spartacus. After the army of former Roman slaves led by Spartacus is defeated in battle by legions of the Roman army, a Roman general stands before the captured surviving members of the slave army and demands that they turn over Spartacus, or else all of the former slaves will be executed. Upon hearing this and not wanting his friends to be executed, Spartacus stands up and says "I am Spartacus." However, the loyalty of his friends is so great that each of them stands forward in succession, shouting "I am Spartacus!" until the shouts dissolve into a cacophony of thousands of former slaves each insisting "I am Spartacus!" Bewildered and still not knowing which of them is Spartacus, but impressed by the loyalty he inspires in his army, the Roman general has all of the slaves crucified in a miles-long display alongside the Appian Way leading back to Rome.

Spartickes Dyes is a family effort. We all have our own special talents and ideas that we put together to make the best product possible. We all like to say we are Spartickes, and in some ways, we are.

I like to think that Spartickes Dyes rather than dies. It's better that way.
