“At ICAS Vilas Art, we pride ourselves on our commitment to innovation in framing techniques and styles, ensuring that each frame is meticulously crafted to suit the artwork’s unique requirements. Our approach is marked by keen attention to detail, resulting in personalized and high-quality customer service. We strictly use conservation-grade materials in our framing solutions, which means we exclusively employ archival materials designed to safeguard and preserve artworks over time. Conservation materials prevent damage to artwork from environmental factors such as light, humidity, and pollution while accentuating its beauty and visual appeal. Our materials are acid-free, pH-neutral, and free of harmful chemicals that can cause deterioration or discolouration, thus ensuring the artwork remains pristine for many years”.

DO YOU FRAME MEMORABILIA AND SPORTS SHIRTS?
Yes, over the years, we were fortunate to be asked to frame sports shirts from the world of Grand Prix formula one racing, football, cycling, rugby, tennis, cricket, and swimming. Each completed project poses unique challenges, but we try to create a frame that tells a story, including photos and historical references and select the best frame profile & mount style that both protects the memento and displays it at its best.

HOW DO YOU MAKE DECISIONS ON A FRAMING & MOUNTING STYLE?
A well-designed frame with a mount style can complement your art and deliver the overall experience. We will guide you with various ways to mount your piece, each idea of using different materials and a different overall finish.
Choosing the right colour tone of mount style is often down to the effect you are looking for, the type of art you are framing, and personal taste. A well-thought-out combination of frame profile, mount and mounting style will enhance a photo, original art, print or memorabilia and give the piece an authentic visual identity.
