Why "Gobelin"?

Manufacture des Gobelins is a historic tapestry factory in Paris, France.

Just like threads in a tapestry, the tokens in a design system (globals) are interlinked and, when combined in a certain way, create a visual image.

Global => Gobelin

It's All About Globals

Most (if not) all items in a preset should be controlled by (or linked to) globals. Globals are the ones that change values and forward those values to the items.
