People suck! while moving, i left my gorgeou 1930s sofa unattended for a tiny bit and someone slashed it up with a boxcutter. How should I sew it in order to mend it?

The fabric is sort of embossed or sheared short something....it definitely has an up and down grain, and the slashes ranging 2-4" are in the direction of the grain. I'll post pictures in the comments if need be, but i'm wondering what the best stitch use in mending these would be. I'm asuming a tiny seam will be left, but hopefully the pattern of the fabric will hide it mostly. As i said, the slashes are straight up-and-down and fairly straight -- no ragged edges that need to be matched. thanks!
