A drug delivery system (DDSs) was developed in the present study based on textile substrates as drug carriers and electrospun nanofibers as a controller of release rate. Three types of drugs consisting of ciprofloxacin (CIP), clotrimazole (CLO), and benzalkonium chloride (BEN) were loaded into the cover glass (CG) and cotton fabrics (CF1 and CF2) separately. Then, the drug-loaded substrates were coated with polycaprolactone (PCL) and polycaprolactone/gelatin (PCL/Gel) nanofibers with various thicknesses. The morphology and hydrophilicity of the electrospun nanofibers and the release profile of drug-loaded samples were investigated. FTIR, XRD, and in vitro biodegradability analysis were analyzed to characterize the drug delivery system. A morphological study of electrospun fibers showed the mean diameter of the PCL and PCL/Gel nanofibers 127 ± 25 and 178 ± 38 nm, respectively. The drug delivery assay revealed that various factors affect the rate of drug releases, such as the type of drug, the type of drug carrier, and the thickness of the covered nanofibers. The study highlights the ability of drugs to load substrates with coated nanofibers as controlled drug delivery systems. In conclusion, it is shown that the obtained samples are excellent candidates for future wound dressing applications.
