Where were kites invented

china
The earliest known kite was from 2300 B.C. they were invented in China
No one can tell for sure where the first kite was made.
The is no doubt that the kite originated in Asia but if China claims to have the most ancient writings about kites, the Malay people (nowadays spread mainly in an area comprising Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines, are actually just as likely, or even more likely, to have invented the kite.
As seafarers, their knowledge of the wind, lines and sails materials was much greater than that of the Chinese. Even before paper was invented, in areas where fabric was not available or too costly, the most ancient types of kites may have had sails made from large single or assembled leaves, or from any other woven natural material similar to those used for making boat sails.
The tradition for making these kites is still alive in Indonesia nowadays, notably in Sulawesi and Lombok islands.
In many aspects the kite traditions of the Malay are more diverse and stronger than those of the Chinese. This is why, although there will never be any real evidence, some kite experts believe the kite first appeared in South East Asia rather than in mainland China.
