A Cuban, a Nicaraguan and a Vietnamese
guy walk into a bar...
It was February 2015, and the three guys went out to grab some beers, and share a few laughs. As you can imagine, it was very similar to any other guys night. We ate way too much, some of us drank too much, and the conversation was mostly about sports and women. That night though was the beginning of something that the industry needed. The market was ignoring those people who needed to store their herbs.
What we realized was that storage for herbs and other “stuff” needed a major update. The options that were out there were either HUGE, too expensive or just plain butt-ugly. People were actually still storing their products in plastic bags and candle jars!
We went back and forth with ideas and the excitement built to the point where we knew it was something we had to pursue. That night we made it our goal to bring ICKY to the masses and move everyone that would listen, from storing herb in baggies to high quality humidor boxes.
We made this product and site for the regular person who is looking to upgrade how they store their “stuff”. Sooo…. after what seemed like 86 prototypes, we finally fell in love with our new solution to this age-old problem. We hope that you too love our product, support ICKY and keep it sticky!
