General Questions

Wondering how to pronounce Recursia? You're not alone. Here at Recursia, we celebrate diversity in perception, a principle that's reflected not only in our art and designs, but also in the pronunciation of our name. There are two accepted pronunciations:

  1. Ri-kUHR-zhuh
  2. Ri-kUHR-Cee-ah

Much like the subjective interpretation of art, we believe in the "you say tomato, I say tomahto" approach when it comes to pronouncing Recursia. However, the word "recursion" was a key inspiration behind our company's name, so if you're looking for a pronunciation that reflects our roots, you might lean towards Ri-kUHR-zhuh. But remember, there's no wrong way to say Recursia!

It's important to note that Recursia does not accept returns due to garments being ordered in the wrong size. Quality and ethical standards are our top priorities. We use high-quality materials and state-of-the-art sublimation-dye printing technologies to ensure the colors and details of our designs remain sharp, vivid, and attractive.

As a growing small business, we appreciate your understanding and patronage. We hope to expand our return policy as we grow, but at this time, we do not have the infrastructure to handle returns based on incorrect orders. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding. Always inspect the size guides before purchasing to ensure the best fit.


At Recursia, each of our distinctive print designs forms the basis of our product collections. Each design has its own dedicated page where you can find a brief description of its inspiration or the sources from which its patterns were derived. All our design collections stem from original digital art and photographs created by our talented artists and photographers or from public domain material. We invite you to delve into our design collections and discover something that brings joy to your day!

Recursia stands out through our unique blend of interdisciplinary techniques, unconventional production methods, boundless creativity, and the application of scientific understanding of human visual perception. Our contributing artists, who have formal education in visual sensation, perception psychology, and neurobiology, utilize this knowledge to create designs ranging from aesthetically pleasing to awe-inspiring.

The majority of the art, print designs, and products available on both the Recursia Marketplace and Recursia Studios are original creations by our founder, CEO, and chief artist, Michael Karlovich. You can learn more about Michael on his personal website.
