Door panel fabric torn, fixable ?

My driver side door panel has fabric that's torn, I'm wondering if anyone's repaired the fabric on there's before and how ? And where one can find a replacement fabric that matches the original.

Looks like Pallex.

Yeah, that's the only realistic option. Reproduction Pallex is out there in some quantity, because the GNs used the same cloth. PUI currently makes repro seat covers in Pallex, so a person should be able to track it down. However, it'd be a whole lot easier to take the door panel apart, and apply 3M Trim Adhesive 08088, and carefully press the old cloth in place so the torn edges line up with each other, and hope the tear disappears.
