About The Recursia® Marketplace
This website is the primary storefront for Recursia Studios, the design lab of Recursia, LLC, a unique multidisciplinary company based in New York City. Recursia specializes in producing fashion, goods, and visual media informed by a modern scientific understanding of the human visual system, perception, neuroaesthetics, and ancient design principles from a diverse array of cultures.
We combine knowledge of how vision works in the eyes, brain, and mind to create Recursia® print designs. Recursia is unique because our designers are artists trained in cognitive neuroscience and visual perception. Recursia® is a brand for anyone who wishes to express themselves through fashion and design. We are for individuals who like to stand out from the crowd and strut their stuff.
We have something for everyone: fashionistas on the cutting edge, bohemian troubadours, visual artists, musicians, eccentrics, as well as your everyday person. Everything we offer is by our artists and vision scientists to catch attention and be pleasing to the eye.
Recursia® designs typically range from classy and modern-chic to outrageously psychedelic and avant-garde. Recursia goods are for any situation where you want to show off your personality and unabashedly be yourself. So whether going to a music festival or concert, a party, working out at the gym, or lounging around with family and friends, there is a Recursia product for you! Our main design goal is to create exciting patterns intended to feel novel - yet familiar and assist the wearer in expressing their unique personality. Overall, we strive to produce goods that hearts and minds will love.
Quality and Ethical Standards Guaranteed
Creating excellent products responsibly and ethically is our top priority. We combine our exclusive print designs and the most comfortable and highest quality materials we can procure with state-of-the-art printing technologies. This ensures that all our garments are extremely comfy and the colors and details of our intricate 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. The majority of our products are hand-made in the USA. All Recursia® goods are made-to-order.

Some of the world's biggest polluters are the textile and fashion industries. We at Recursia® strive to minimize our negative impact and environmental footprint. For this reason, all of our products are made on a by-order basis by fairly-paid professionals. Each piece you order is individually hand-made in a sustainable way.
To help us minimize waste, please scrutinize the size charts before purchasing. Our products are printed, hand-cut-and-sewn, and inspected for quality and correct sizing in-house prior to shipment. Click here to view our return policy
Follows are the two valid pronunciations:
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.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND PATRONAGE!
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
