You could separate it with some sort of lining, but unless you constantly perform maintenance on it, the black will get onto the white, it's inevitable.

Nothing Ventured. Nothing Gained.

No matter what you do the two will mix. It's a pain to keep them separate. Actually it's impossible. good luck!
