If you look at how balloons came to be, these were first invented in France in the 18th century. They were initially made out of paper bags that were filled with hot air. This made the bags rise up. Later on, experiments were done to create balloons out of different materials like silk, cloth, and paper. A public demonstration was made where the balloons were made lighter than air by a cloth that was lined with paper. Around the same time, about 1783, Jacques Charles filled a balloon made of silk that had a rubber varnish and was filled with hydrogen gas. All these demonstrations led to much excitement and the concept was worked upon to finally give form to the rubber bases balloons that are used today.
Today there are balloons made of durable latex that is tough and can outlast different weather conditions.
