Superhydrophobic surfaces are obtained by a sustainable approach by electrospinning of water‐based acrylate dispersion followed by mild silanization and removal of template polymer. The resulting nonwovens show very high superhydrophobicity and very low roll angle. In contrast to many other approaches, pores provide the required morphology to achieve superhydrophobicity. This new material provides a new approach to electrospun nonwoven coatings which can be of interest for textile applications.
