General Questions

Follows are the two valid pronunciations:

1.  Ri-kUHR-zhuh

2. Ri-kUHR-Cee-ah

Here at Recursia we like to create art and designs that can be interpreted in different ways depending on how you are perceiving them. This principle is reflected in the pronunciation of Recursia. It is an, "I say potato, you say potato", kind of thing. However, being that the word "recursion" was a main inspiration behind the company's name, one could argue that the proper pronunciation must reflect this, and thus should be Ri-kUHR-zhuh. 

Shipping & Returns

We use all major carriers, and local courier partners. You’ll be asked to select a delivery method during checkout.

It depends on where you are. Typically domestic orders processed in the US will take 5-7 business days to arrive. We always strive to get you your order to you no later than 10 business days from the time you made your order.

However, please note that some products come from Europe and may encounter delays. For products coming from Europe please expect 7-16 days for your purchase to arrive.

Recursia does not accept returns or exchanges unless the item you purchased is defective. PLEASE CHECK THE SIZE CHARTS BEFORE PURCHASING ANY CLOTHING! If you receive a defective item, please contact us at with pictures and details of the product and the defect. Customers have 30 days following the delivery date of their purchase to inquire about returning a product due to a defect. We will provide you with an address to ship the item back. Upon receipt of the returned product, we will fully examine it and notify you via e-mail, within a reasonable period of time, whether you are entitled to a replacement as a result of the defect. If you are entitled to a replacement, we will replace the product.

To be clear: Recursia® does not accept returns due to garments being ordered in the wrong size. Please inspect the size charts before purchasing clothing or any product where the size is important.

Quality and Ethical Standards Guaranteed

Creating excellent, exciting products in a responsible and ethical fashion is a Recursia priority. Beyond using high-quality materials, to maintain our high standards, all the goods we offer are made using state-of-the-art sublimation-dye printing technologies to ensure the colors and details of our designs remain sharp, vivid, and attractive. The fabric design for each garment is printed and inspected for quality before being individually hand-cut and sewn by experienced professionals in North America and Europe.


Recursia® is a new small business with a small team. As we grow we fully intend to be able to handle returns based on mistake orders, however at this time we have no infrastructure to handle this. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience and hope you understand.

Again, please always carefully inspect the size guides before purchasing to ensure you get the product that will fit you best!


We use Recursia® original print designs as the basis to create our goods. Each design has its own page containing a brief description of where the patterns were derived or its inspiration. All Recursia art and design collections are derived either from original digital art and photographs by our artists and photographers, or material in the public domain. We hope you enjoy exploring our design collections and find something that will make your day!

Recursia's diverse array of unprecedented art and designs is born
from interdisciplinary approaches, counter-intuitive and unconventional
production methods, unbridled creative, and applied scientific understanding of
human visual perception. All of the contributing artists of Recursia have a
formal understanding of visual sensation and perception on a psychological and
neurobiological level and we use this knowledge to produce displays that are
generally accepted as aesthetically pleasing at the least to awe-inspiring at

Virtually all art, print designs, and
products offered by both the Recursia® Marketplace and Recursia Studios are original creations by the
founder, CEO, and chief artist of Recursia, LLC, Michael Karlovich. Click here to view Michael's Personal Website.
