Our new couch has a tear along the seam of the seat. How can we fix this ourselves?

We bought a new couch in August of this year. Totally enjoying it! Enjoying it enough that it has developed a tear along the seam of the seat.
The tear about 4 inches long (image here
). We'd like to fix this ourselves as we are unclear if it is covered under warranty (not sure if it qualifies as a manufacturing defect).
The seat is attached to the couch, and the rest of the tweed-like fabric is fairly taught. What should we do to fix this?
