The use of this type of eyelet can be found on embroideries, often called eyelet embroideries, eyelet work or eyelet hole work, from many parts throughout the world. Eyelet work is the name sometimes used for broderie anglaise.
Be aware that the eyelet hole is also the name for a different stitch, used for instance in Hardanger embroidery.
