Schacht Flatiron Spinning Wheel

A Spinning Wheel that Combines Elegance and Innovation

The Flatiron Spinning Wheel unfolds from its flat-packed state, resembling the rise of Boulder's iconic Flatirons. Its sleek design, made of moulded maple ply, mirrors the dramatic appeal of the Flatirons. This unique Saxony-style wheel breaks from tradition, reflecting the unconventional vibe of its hometown, Boulder, Colorado.
