Coconix Fabric and Carpet Repair Kit

Cleaning solution (such as a household cleaner)

Scissors or utility knife (if necessary)

Cotton balls or cotton wadding (if padding is missing)

Step 1

Preparing the Damaged Area

  • Prepare the damaged area on your office chair by carefully trimming any excess threads or burn marks.
  • Clean the area with a cleaning solution and a cloth.
  • If padding is missing from the area you are repairing and the area under the damage is indented, insert cotton balls or cotton wadding and spread it evenly.

Step 2

Adding Backing Fabric (for larger rips)

  • For rips larger than 1/4 of an inch, cut a piece of backing fabric with rounded edges, slightly larger than the damaged area.
  • Insert it into the rip with the spatula provided in the kit.
  • Do not use the backing fabric for repairs smaller than 1/4 of an inch.

Step 3

Mixing the Repair Fibers

  • In the mixing jar, add the matching color fibers and the metal ball.
  • Attach the lid and shake the jar for at least 30 seconds.
  • If your repair requires a custom color, refer to the Color Mixing Guide in the kit to match the color and prepare the mixture using the empty mixing jar provided.
  • Test your mixture by placing a small amount of the fiber mixture on the repair area with the tweezers.
  • Keep on adjusting your mixture until you get the perfect match. Be patient and make small adjustments until the color matches just right.

Step 4

Applying the Repair Glue

  • Apply the glue to the worn-out areas on your office chair, under and along the edges, working from the outside toward the center to avoid air bubbles.
  • Fill the worn-out areas as evenly as possible.
  • Apply a thin layer of glue around the damage to blend in the repair as well.

Step 5

Adding Fibers

  • Take off the lid of the jar and remove the metal ball. Secure the piece of mesh on top of the jar with the rubber band and use this as a sieve.
  • Hold the mixing jar upside down above the adhesive and gently tap the mixing jar. This will gradually sift the fibers over the adhesive. 
  • Cover the adhesive completely with the fabric fibers.

Step 6

Finishing the Repair

  • Gently pack down the fibers with the spatula. Duplicate any fabric patterns such as lines or swirls with the spatula on your office chair.
  • Allow 24 hours for it to dry. Once the fabric glue has dried fully, blow off any excess fibers.

Step 9


  • To ensure that your repair lasts as long as possible, it's important to maintain the fabric of your office chair.
  • Use a fabric protector or spray to protect the repaired areas from future wear and tear.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasives on the repaired areas, as they may damage the repair and undo all of your hard work.

And there you have it! You've just fixed those worn-out areas on your office chair and it's looking as good as new. Give yourself a pat on the back and enjoy your newly repaired office chair.
