1. A fluid-filled chamber comprising:
a first barrier sheet formed from a first material;
a second barrier sheet attached to the first barrier sheet and formed from a second material, the first barrier sheet and the second barrier sheet cooperating to define an internal cavity;
a tensile member disposed within the internal cavity and formed from a third material; and
a first weld that attaches the first barrier sheet, the second barrier sheet, and the tensile member together by melding the first material of the first barrier sheet, the second material of second barrier sheet, and the third material of the tensile member.
