when you vote for the government to do this and do that. When government bureaucrats are endowed with newly printed money to take resources and labor from the market to fund wars/welfare boondongles, the peons have to make do with cheap substitutes. Products from China just happened to be the best bang for the buck for the peons desperately trying to maintain a semblance of standards of living that their forefathers had before the modern fiat money mega-government fiasco. Trying to buy from countries other than China, or even buying America-only, wouldn't do squat to help the situation. North Koreans know all about what life is like under exclusive domestic production. Trade restriction is just one more boondongle for the already too big and too expensive government to make the people/peons' lives even more miserable.
