"A utility-first CSS framework for rapidly building custom designs."

It's an excellent description in of it's own, but if I were to attempt to put it in other terms, it allows you to compose css components and classes out of other smaller, essentially one liner css classes, while maintaining a consistent styling and spacing across the different utilities, which you define up front using the config but also comes with good defaults out of the box.

It is excellent and now my preferred method for hacking up a new site. It also helps you think about your design system overall so now I find myself paying attention to things up front I would normally wouldn't and it ends up saving me time in the long run. It also pairs really well with the excellent Refactoring UI book.
