Our materials are largely stain-resistant, but even they can’t handle permanent ink.
Some clothing and accessories may have dyes that can stain the material. Dark denim, for example, is notoriously transferable and hard to remove. The climate and humidity level where you live may also impact dye transfer. It’s hard to control, not always preventable and may be irreversible.
