This isn't exact to what you are showing, but I drew lines with my pen tool, then selected individual points along the path with my direct select arrow tool to round them off using the corner widget.Next, I duplicated and reflected the path, then created one more duplicate of one of the paths.Finally, using a combination of live paint merge where the center areas overlap, I was able to fill them in using the live paint fill.Then you could add a gradient mesh to create realistic shadows.

It might be easier to just buy the stock file.

But if you want to do it: draw the shapes

use gradients, gradient meshes and/or blends to create the shading.

Hi Kaysar,

Thanks for reaching out. As Monika mentioned, you can create twisted ribbons with gradient meshes and blends. Few suggestions are shared here as well: Mobius Strip Design in Illustrator?

You can also check out this video tutorial: Quick 3D ribbon effect in Adobe Illustrator - YouTube 

Let us know if that helps or if you need any further assistance.

Regards,
