Small leather repair

Hi

My first request on WS. I have just bought a really nice leather lounge for a steal on "Treeplace"

It has a small tear in it which is part of the reason for $$$.

I intend to get some all black adhesive tape and feed it through and stick it on from the inside, a bit tricky but easy enough.

The tape will have to be black on adhesive side.

Anyway, perhaps somebody has some experience in this, would love to hear.

Regards

Brian

Thanks Marty
They have a lot of colourings but not much else.
I have emailed them and included an image for advice.
Here's hoping.
Cheers
