Pontianak

Together with Sukadana, Pontianak was the Company's biggest diamond supplier. The VOC had no trading relations with this town in the 17th century and it was not until 1778 that a residency was installed there. Besides diamonds, Pontianak supplied gemstones and wax. Fabrics shipped by the VOC from India were in great demand here.
