Arabic term or phrase: saroual loubia

"The Mozabites are an Amazigh group with their own traditions, beliefs, rites and lifestyle. They belong to the Ibadi sect of Islam, which has a different way, praying, worshipping God and designing mosques from the majority of Algerians, who are Malikis. Mozabites are recognised by their traditional costume of saroual loubia (baggy trousers) and chéchia (head gear)."
The meaning is quite clear from the English term (baggy trousers) and surely the word saroual is سروال . That leaves the word (loubia) as the mysterious one, at least for me.
Any ideas?
