Electrospun mats with complex ordered architectures are fabricated by using patterned conductive collectors. The effect of the diameter of the web wires and the protrusions on the formation of the patterns of the fibrous materials are elaborated and woven structures that have been generated by a time-dependent control of the arrangement of the protrusions in the collector are shown (see figure).
