About Damar (Mata Kucing)

Damar gum / Damar resin is a natural resin obtained from Dipterocarpaceae family of trees, mainly those of Shorea genus and species Shorea javanica. This tree family is found predominantly in Pesisir Barat Lampung, Sumatra – Indonesia. 

This trees are easy to spot because they are large, upright, and towering trees. If you see a hole in the tree trunk, you can be sure it is a Damar tree. The notch hole was deliberately made so that the tree secretes clear colored resin.

The resin that comes out of the tree is left for 10 days to dry and crystallize. Only then it can be harvested. After the resin is taken, the hole can be notched again so that the resin can come out again.

The quality is graded and determined mainly by the lump’s size, the purity degree and the color. The best quality of Damar gum Mata Kucing has a colorless and transparent physical appearance. Because of the superior physical appearance of Damar, it is used in copious amounts of materials and goods and has been so used for centuries.

Traditionally, Damar resin Mata Kucing is used as material for covering the gaps in the boards of boats and baskets, for making batik, and burned for lighting. And now Damar gum/ Damar resin is used as a raw material in the production of high end dyes, cosmetics, and paints.
