Score! and a question

I took my Mom out shopping yesterday.  She loves to go to thrift stores too.  So fun!  I found a package full of seam binding, great colors.  I thought seam binding was always rayon but one package is marked taffeta.  I have never seen that before this.  Anyway, there was also a roll of this stuff!  Bottom two pictures. I have no clue what it is.  It feels like plastic to me.  It is quite stiff.  Anyone know what it is?  Or what you do with it?

Is it webbing for tote bag handles?

It looks to me like a stabilizer that was used in necklines. I learned to sew in the mid 60's and it was used then in better garments. Its hard to tell from a picture.
