A burnous (also spelled burnoose, or bournous; from the Berber and Maghribi Arab. burnus) is a long Moroccan cloak of woollen fabric with a hood, Although not so common today it was once worn by Berbers and the Arabs throughout Morocco and North Africa.
It became a distinctive part of the uniform of the French colonial army's Spahi soldiers. It was also sometimes worn unofficially by officers or soldiers of other units in North Africa. The burnous remains part of the uniform of the one remaining Spahi regiment of the French Army, the 1st Spahi Regiment.
