While this isn't the original description, here is a Sears listing from 1950 that nails this weave:

One of fashion's favorites for spring and summer-1950. Because fashion stylists are featuring 'interesting texture" in their creations, this nubby rayon Fairloom fabric is soaring to new prominence. It has the yard crisp look of linen, plus the rough texture of nubby rayon. Softness and fineness of the yarns result in smooth, graceful folds. use it for dressy as well as tailored clothes. Light in weight, cool, and comfortable for the hottest weather.

Especially easy to launder. Hand wash separately. Rich colors retain their beauty.
