Im trying to identify what these metal fasteners on my top are called? ?

They are not sewn on to the fabric but pressed in (kind of like an eyelet?).

Ive never seen anything like them before, but I would like to buy more for clothes that Im making - and its impossible without knowing what to call them. Photo attached!

    These Hooks and eyes are not your typical ones. Usually they are a lot smaller and sewn on to the top of zippers to keep the tab closed, normally used on skirts and zip up dresses and shirts.

    The hooking eyes you have appear to be attached with rivets. And, they are jumbo size. You may find the size you're looking for if you search for hook and eyes for outerwear or fur type garments.

    Agree with many yes, hook and eyes.  Take your photo to a fabric shop and they will assist in finding these for you.  Good luck

    Its hook and eye loops on a tape. Hopefully the link works

    Ebay sells it. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2...

    That's the eye of a 'hook and eye'.

    Yes, those are the eye parts of hook and eye fasteners. The hook is on one side and the eye on the other and the hook is, well, hooked into the eye to close the garment. Normally they're stitched on.

    They are the eye part of 'hooks and eyes' which were bought on cards together. Often ended up with these left over as my Ma made her own thread eyes and only used the hook. These ones appear to be riveted on rather than sewn so are either on a tape or were put on by a machine.

    Those are hooks and eyes but not hidden under fabric. There are some examples of both ways they’re used (as well as available for purchase) here:

    I can't remember for the life of me, but take the picture to any good fabric store like Joann's, and they will have them. It's possible even Walmart will have them.
