The area of Enschede was originally a marketplace settlement during the medieval times. The city really began to take shape during the period of industrialisation in the Netherlands. During the 1800s and into the 1900s the area was stimulated by the production of textiles and the manufacturing of bombazjin, a mix of linen and cotton. Many people migrated to the area to look for employment at these large factories and this further generated the businesses and trade in the city. The end of the industrial era hit the city hard and production ground to a halt. The rejuvenation of the city in recent years has led to a now, diverse economy, including services and employment at the University of Twente.
